The amount of the bill is meaningless.

Did your kWhs used increase, or did the price per kWr increase?

Really? Because if you used more electricity, your bill is going to be higher, and it would be noone's fault but your own. Especially during the summer, when a malfunctioning air conditioner by itself could have a significant impact on your electric bill.

So tell me what's so stupid about this comment, aside from taking away the thunder of your rant against he big bad power company...

Duke Energy hasn't raised its rates yet, they applied to the NC Utilities Commission for a rate increase that would start this fall but the state is negotiating with them as they always do. Duke wants a 9.7% increase however the state has refused that and offered them a 4.5% increase and Duke has to donate 10 million to agencies that help the poor pay their power bills.

You should know this though if you get power from Duke because they have to send out letters anytime they propose an increase. Next time read the inserts that come in your bill. The other thing is even if they had increased rates it wouldn't have went up 90 dollars. Even if Duke got the entire 9.7% it would only average out to around 14 or so dollars more for the average customer.

If your bill went up 90 dollars then you have a problem on your end. A/C motor going bad, using A/C a lot more than normal or something, either way you should just look at your damn bill and see what your KwH usage is compared to last month and same time last year. Sometimes it pays to do a little research before you get excited.
