glad someone finally figured it all out the working people have to work to pay you to stay home and complain because your bills are high, then you go to keoc and get them to pay while the rest of us goes to work maybe even 2 jobs to pay our bills, get over it and TRY GETTING A JOB then you don't have so much time on your hands to complain,and if you are at work a 8 HR SHIFT then you can turn your heat down and that will cut back on your bill, and don't forget to turn the tv off and that will help to, and just to get head start it will go up in july and august to, but i bet you never run a air conditoner, just like you don't turn the heat up in the winter. this is the same forum every winter and every summer,,,,,,

RECC bills are so high because they CAN CHARGE SO MUCH, and the customers are helpless to do anything about it. You can't change your electric provider, you can't get the current rates lowered, and no public official will step-in to help. Thus, you PAY WHATEVER THEY CHARGE OR GO WITHOUT ELECTRICITY! Is it fair? NO. Is it right? NO. If a grocery or other store charges too much, you have the option to shop elsewhere. If you're on RECC electric, you're stuck paying 50% more than KU
customers FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER. Unlike phone, cable or other services, who compete for your business, RECC has no competition...and none is allowed. Thus, they can charge whatever they want and your only choice is to PAY, PAY, PAY!

No choice but to pay? Call up Washington and have them send a few feds from the department of energy down to check things out. Nothing will happen on a local level.
