Is your power bill outrageous?

Posted on: February 26, 2009

For those of you not in the know, KY experienced an ice storm a few weeks ago and many, many people were without power.

Can you believe the audacity of the power company to send bills to people that were without power, charging them for the days they were without power?  Some places it was weeks.

Is there no common sense in the world anymore?  We’re all aware there is no common sense in government, but come on people, charging people for something they didn’t have?!  I hope that everyone calls up their supplier and reams them out….and I don’t care if it’s with obscenities!

Yes, computers are wonderful and the bills are generated by the computer, but it’s supposedly only doing it when a human sends the order to do it….honestly, are people so “like a Stepford wife” they are unable to think?

We’re from Oregon. Our power company is Portland General Electric. (use to be owned by Enron – remember them?). Our bill came yesterday. Besides our usage fee (what we actually use), we are billed a $10.00 basic charge, a $3.00 transmission charge, and a $41.00 distribution charge.
We’re not stupid people. We power strip everything and at night we turned the strips off. In a seven-hundred square foot apartment, our bill was still $153.00!
Great post – we feel for you all in KY – good luck.

PGE (Portland General Electric) are CROOKS. Our electric bill just jumped by over $60 dollars from last month, although we haven’t added any appliances or other electrical devices to our home. We actually cut back our usage to save money, yet our bill jumped drastically. We called PGE and they insisted on simply telling us “You must be using something that is drawing the power”. They won’t even investigate the issue to see if perhaps there might be a problem with their new meters or if someone is tapping our lines. Our landlord also says the same thing instead of trying to have an electrician check for possible surge problems or appliance malfunctions. No matter what we do, we will loose and they (PGE) will win. CROOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They charge more and more without any explainations as to why we have a sudden increase. Even their winter increases shouldn’t cause our bill to jump this high, especially considering we have cut back on our usage by over half. PGE needs to be investigated. I believe they are fraudulent.

  • Memories of our first Christmas in Costa Rica December 22, 2016
    We spent our first Christmas in Costa Rica in 2011.  Going to the festivities in Atenas was a fun time for us.  Loved the Christmas parade and told Mark that maybe we should go in the business of selling drum sticks! What really surprised me was everyone was bundled up.  Coats, jackets, scarfs, hats, and […]
