THOMASVILLE, N.C.– A Davidson County family is wondering how their energy bill has more than doubled.
Duke Energy says it’s because of the cold weather, but Debra Richenberg and her family aren’t buying it.
Richenberg lives in Thomasville with her daughter and son-in-law and she says they budget their money like any family.
She said they were shocked when they got a nearly $1,000 Duke Energy bill, which they said was just for two months.
Richenberg said they’re now trying to figure out how to pay it.
She said they are used to paying around $170 a month for power. So when they got a $971 bill for the past two months, they said they were beyond shocked.
Duke Energy said the extremely cold weather has caused power bills to go up. Richenberg says she understands it has been cold, but does not understand why her bill is so high.
Duke Energy says a lot of customers have seen higher bills and there are smaller things people can do to save money.
Richenberg says her family has talked with Duke Energy and wants to make sure their bill is correct and not a mistake.
Duke Energy said they had service areas that set records for winter energy use including the Carolinas, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
when utilities are forced to close coal-fired plants, they have to buy energy on the open market, which is an auction.....when demand is high and supply is short, prices spike.....

no surprise, and it will get worse....

Lawrence Lindsay, Bush's first chief economic adviser, said there was little impetus to raise alarms about the proliferation of easy credit that was helping Bush meet housing goals.
