You sound like a corporate nitwig.I fully support a rate increase.
You want your computers to run , your 50" tv's , four vc's you pay.
Electricity is like anything else.
You want it you BUY it.
Restaurants are full of people blowing money on cold food when they cold be home, cooking on an electric stove.
When you eat at home ,you pay pennies on the dollar cost of eating COLD food out that is supposed to be served 'piping hot'.
Cook on your electric stove at home & HEAT THE FOOD enough to avoid hepatitis AND save tons of money doing it.
The money you save cooking at home will pay your electric increase and you'll have enough left over to start a college fund for your kids.
I have budgeted for an 85% increase in 2010 and I hope it comes to that.
Stop blaming the oil companies for you financial shortfalls.
Grow up and pay your bills.
PPL share prices open at $44.19 tomorrow. Stock up now , I want more dividends.
I already cook most meals at home. I will be replacing my wood stove this summer. In a few years, solar panels on the roof. Screw PP&L, I'm taking my business elsewhere.
