Why do I get the peanut for logically thinking that by Obama and his administration "bankrupting the coal industry" will not raise our electric prices? The Tennessee Vally Authority gets all it's electric from coal. Kentucky gets most of it's electric from coal. Coal is Kentucky's biggest industry. This will kill millions of american jobs.
What about the hydro-electric plant at Norris Lake?

What about it? The argument was that a carbon tax will kill the coal industry and raise electric prices.

Yeah, but you said the TVA gets "all" of it's electric from coal. That isn't true.

I do agree however that we are screwed though.

Coal does more that just provide us with electric. It provides jobs for Kentuckians. Yes, it is a very dirty resource, but cutting it out all at once will hurt our economy.

If you are on the Creek i think it goes to Big Creek and cut off ,, everyone up there is recc.. only people who live on the main road from there back to 25 gets k.u.. recc buys their electric from k.u.. dont know why,, but that is why you pay more in those areas.. try having a $300.00+ gas bill from oct to march?april and 48.00 summer with nothing burning but the pilot light on top off 130.00 electric bill..

You do, of course, realize you can extinguish your pilot light through the warm months, and turn off the gas.. so as it don't fill your house from the pilot light. Energy saving tip.=)

yeah cause you are probably on K.U otherwise you would not say that and mean it.. just because they sign your paycheck does not mean it's the way to go or maybe you get an employee discount.. as for the service i have no complaints.. they always are very fast to come out when there is a power outage.. but not right for us to have to pay extra when they buy it from K.U.. no way dude.. sorry..

Yeah, I have a few.

Check caulking for cracks around windows and doors.(You can loose up to 50% of your energy there.)

You can also hang clear plastic over your windows, making sure to leave an air gap between the window, and the plastic. Hang the plastic on the trim. This can save you quite a bit of electric, or gas heating.

Close outside foundation vents, they are meant to be closed in the winter. But, don't forget to open them in the spring!

Attic vents are the same, they can be shut off during the winter also, but they don't need to be completely shut off, or you could encounter water problems.

Turn your heat down 2 degrees, as this can save you quite a bit of energy.

=)
Hope that helps!
