if you notice all these people are kinfolks the money that they get is for having a meeting once a month sometimes every three months. they decide who brings the coal in and get the dollar tip under the table.

WHY did they go around changing the meters?
Everybody needs to check it out.
You might have been gone when they done it.
I was home when they changed mine out.
I wished i had asked him why now.
Maybe that has something to do with the high prices. My bill is $234 this month! BIG OUCH!!

Recc charges what they want. Mostly during Income Tax time, I notice or during the Holidays like Christmas for instance. If you take notice your bills tend to go up when the Liheap program is being offered. This is a shame, and should not go without something being done.

I called the other day and ask for help and they were out of funds i haven't ask them for anything since the 1990 and i got i think 80.00 then and Randall young would not use it for that month said he had to wait at least 3 weeks for the money i don't know who they help must be the same ones every yr someone said you had to be there at 6 in the morning and take a number and they only did so many a day and now if you are old and broke down how could you stand in line for the help I think everybody should move in together and just turn your heat down to where you can drain the water line and put antifreeze in it so they don't freeze and bust combine your money together pay the bills for one house and never say a word to anyone about it be just as smart as they are they cant brake you if you use your heads and think don't give your money to them

The bills are ridiculous this month! I turned my heat down (even more) than it already was, turned off the lights and I won't cook much if at all through February, I panicked when I saw our bill yesterday.
It is scary, to have bills that amount and not understand why. Not much we can do about it I guess.
Just turn everything off or get disconnected. Gonna try and get a wood/coal burner, but that is expensive too.

It's not just RECC,just check out the grocery stores at the first of the month.IGA will double on their deli an their fried chicken an things like that.It should be against the law.I think i will take a picture of the price tag at the first of the month an then take another picture of it in the middle of the month an then contact wymt tv.They have a show about things like that,about people getting ripped off.

"Under My Plan, Energy Costs Will Necessarily Skyrocket" ... Barack Obama, 2008

You folks ain't seen nothing yet... And while you are seeing Your Energy costs rise remember that Every Company, Every Store, Ever transporter is seeing the same rise... And in their case they pass that rise along to you in the cost of goods and services you buy... Compare your Grocery bills from last year... The Increase is Mainly due to Energy Cost rise... Those costs will Increase over the next year at a rate that is going to stun many people...

So what do you think a Store should do? If they see their energy, shipping and product costs go up are you saying they should keep the same price even if they lose money.. IGA actually only makes about a 2% profit, Grocery Stores are one of the lowest profit biz's in the US... They like all other companies stay in biz and pay their employees based on making a profit... When they don't make a profit they close their doors and those workers are out of work...

Look at Your bills over the last couple of years... All the companies out there have those bills also... As their cost to do Biz goes up they either have to raise prices to you or close the doors... And on top of that they have to follow crap loads of new regulations and the paperwork that goes with it, Which requires paying people to do that work... And when the Government Taxes those Mean Old Rich Guys (That own and operate Stores, companies ect) we tax You.. We tax the minimum wage earner because those increase in Costs to those Rich Guys is past to You in the price of goods and services you have to pay for to survive....

I have Cumberland Valley Electric. I just checked my bill with the rates they show on their web site and it hasn't changed since June 2011
Schedule I - Residential, Schools and Churches
Rates:
Customer Charge Per Customer $5.74 per month
All KWH .08563 per KWH

I thought for sure there had a been a rate increase since my bill was so high but I was wrong. I guess I just turned up the heat to high.
