Because everyone allows them to be, gang up and tell them you're mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore.

Another reason is they buy there electricity from UK, at least that's what I heard.

Hehe, what happens when you have to use the bathroom really bad, you screw up.

I meant to say they buy from KU, but I'm not 100% sure on this, just heard that one time.

People have a lot of power if they would stick together. All it would take is everyone getting together and telling them to lower the rates or you're going to disconnect. If they don't, discontinue service and see how fast they drop the rates when their subscribers drop them. Yeah I know this will never happen because people are too lazy to live without electricity, but it would work.

No they do not buy their energy from ku, they buy it from east ky power in winchester, ky. they have about 20 times the miles of lines to maintain than ku does thats why jackson is so much higher than ku. ku is lucky in the fact that they do not service the rural areas in hollows and mountain tops that jackson does...if you will notice ku is only near city limits...it sucks but that is why jackson is high.

another explanation for the high rates was the price of fuel for their trucks. well gas has been decreasing for about 6 weeks now, and why has this not been passed on to the consumer? I also hear that their rates are going up again in january, one of the coldest months of course. If they raise rates because of gas prices, why cant they lower rates when gas prices go down? because they are greedy thats why.

They can charge you whatever they want cause you cant do anything about it! It is sickening but so true. I think there should be someone to complain to but the only one I can think of is Depatment of energy in frankfort.
Ticked Off

They changed my meter too. My bill has been almost $100 higher EVERY month since then. I'm ticked off about it. I talked to someone at the electric company to see if I could get my meter checked-and they are trying to charge me $25 just to do that. Just a bunch of bull crap if you ask me. I think we're all getting ripped off.

Yes i agree the rates are high but there are some people who can NOT drop their electric service as the whole house depends on electric. With winter comming and kids at home we need heat,lights.

u can put me on that list also for cumberland valley recc being so high
ek power is sooooo much cheaper and they are AEP boy did I love those 40-80 more around 40 then 80 dollar electric bills when I lived in ohio and had AEP.
I wish AEP would buy these rural electric companies out. BTW recc keeps saying kentucky has the cheapest rates in the country yeah maybe if ur an employee or ur with KU but its not a bit true

we also have the lowest paying jobs but the cost of living is not much cheaper like it used to be. compare cost of gas and food here with other cities, not much different. and the bigger cities have more options and public transportation. and if someone is going to suggest moving, keep in mind it is expensive to move and a job is needed to be secured before making any move.
