I can not understand how they can make up these extra fees for us to pay when we are paying way too much already. I think they have been doing this for about a year now and I just wondering what everyone else thinks about having to pay these extra charges that they made up. Please call CEMC and complain about these charges.

I agree with you Jerry. I lived in an area and had NES and it was a lot cheaper plus they did not add in additional fees like CEMC.

My bill has gone up tremendously. It is infuriating! I am paying rates on my home electricity that I could heat a house 3 sizes larger than mine in Knoxville. I know because my relatives live there and are paying less than I am for a house that is double the size of mine. I am contacting CEMC. They are scamming us customers - stealing from us - and I think it is high time we raise hell!

I called and the lady told me if enough people complain that they would take the extra $20 customer charge off and refund it because it was added for no reason.

Sad part is 120.67 is TVA and 23.00 is Customer Cost.. So Not only are we paying to use the electricity but have we have to pay for the fuel cost for them to run the electriced... Thats like me bulilding a house but making the home owner to pay for me building it plus all my equipment to do the Job with in cluding Fuel... Plus charge them a Customer Cost... For what.... We all need to make a stand... Dont relly know how to get this started but we need to make a stand... All CEMC Customers need to make a stand togther...

Yeah this is ridiculous. My father in law lives in a 3 story 2300sq ft home in another part of the state and I live in a 900sq ft house in Clarksville. He keeps his heat on 80 24/7 throughout the winter and I keep mine on 65. Last month, my bill was $100 more than his. I don't even have a washer/dryer. I shower every other day and don't have much plugged in other than a fridge and a tv and a few lamps. Anytime I have called to ask them about it, they say, "it's just these winter months." Really? That's your explanation? It's been like below 35 maybe 1 week out of the entire winter.

Same story lived in Nasville in a much bigger home and paid less than the smaller home I now reside in its 1250 sqft and I pay between 230-290 per month. I think they just charge what they want. Btw there was an outage this morning and I call the 800 number and just went to a fast busy, really al the money I pay and I can't even get an automated response...CEMC is by far the worst price wise and service wise.

There are 4 of us in my household. The same four that were there last year and yet the bill continues to rise. We have not increased the usage since last year and the fuel cost was $17.00 and now it's $67. You tell me how the hell it cost that much when they don't even drive the trucks to read the meters anymore. Everything is electronic and they haven't had to fix anything so why the extra jump in charges?? I am extremely furious. It saddens me to know that most of us have to now choose between paying our bills and feeding our kids because some jackass needs more money in their pockets. Oh not to mention we had a brand new unit installed with new duct work to prevent the loss of heat and air in the crawl space. It made a huge difference last year in the bill. They most have noticed that our bill was going down so they had to add bs charges.

TVA is completely unregulated on the psuedo basis that TVA accepts no funding from the government. However, since the people built, paid for and own TVA, it is a quasi-government entity.

HOWEVER, if electric consumers investigate, you will see how this is gotten around is all of the various brokers and/or middle men, largely cooperatives, are the ones that receive and cash the non-stop government checks representing money that actually doesn't exist (the enslavement of all and our unborn) and de facto welfare.

What do they do with these large amounts of money? Cut rates? NEVER!
Give themselves raises well beyond their actual real world worth based upon their actual level of education, work experience and customer satisfaction? Make crony deals for electrical service installs that amazingly enough benefit very few and their own as well?

Rates never decrease and I am sure all of you remember when gas was at 5 bucks a gallon. What did all the TVA brokers do? Raised rates in the ball park area of 25%!!! Did the rates come down when gas dropped 2 bucks? NO! They have steadily increased, as have electric cooperative and service provider employee pay and benefit packages.

Keep in mind, we will ALL pay the upkeep and to death (and even beyond) benefits for most all of these career people, and we all know that many of them are world class gold brickers, so very fortunate to have a job that pays them more than double their real worth for very little work..... and abusing everyone with impunity.

Here is just one source of welfare for the small handfuls of your neighbors that do everything in their power to keep it all for themselves while jacking up your ever increasing living costs.

Remember, TVA is supposed to be owned by the people, NOT own the people.

Yes, you mentioned the fly ash instance. TVA came out well on top despite knowing good and well it harmed many Tennesseans. That has long been how government agencies work.

The thing is, we must take ownership of what is ours and insist that all government/quasi-government officials and employees ARE NOT overpaid and are held to a much higher standard of accountability than the regular people who entirely foot the bill for their existences.

TDOT, our police departments and many other state agencies are absolutely no different.

Their pay is much closer related to welfare than those of us who make our own way through this world, asking or accepting nothing of our neighbors, much less forcing them to pay us for abuse.

By the way, the people over the Tennessee Cooperative are nothing more than Lobbyist, for big business. Nobody with any of the electric brokers advocates for the end consumers, unless they are part of the owning elite.

Let's discuss real solutions.

there is absolutely ZERO excuse for any TVA owner/customer NOT HAVING THE ABSOLUTE LOWEST energy AND UTILITY costs of any non-third world person in the whole world.

Why this wouldn't happen can only be explained in the same manner that Shelby County (Memphis) has a property tax rate more than three times that of any other county in Tennessee. GREED, incompetence and mismanagement along with a HEAVY dose of complacent people who can be counted on to DO NOTHING to hold their servants ACCOUNTABLE.

Check the CEO of NES's (a highly subsidized NON-Profit) salary and bonuses. Check all their upper management's wages. Do the same all across the state. Do these people rock stars and cut of the same cloth as the Wall Streeters and Banksters?

It never ceases to shock me how many barely literate high school grads are paid as if they have Ivy League Phds merely being lucky enough to have played marbles with or blown the right person.

It looks that way to me..... nobody should get wealthy, much less vulgarly wealthy, supplying the people their own public utilities. The people built TVA, fought wars to make it possible and many gave their lives as well as family farms. The people own TVA.

It is not just CEMC, the rapid and steadily increasing of rates while all these brokers cash HUGE welfare checks from the Federal government is rampant and rife all across the state. Some areas have managed to somewhat keep costs in check, but still, it's much higher than it should be everywhere supplied by TVA.

Now, when you start looking, see which customers have the rates so low they approach free. Well heck, investigate and see who is actually getting electricity for FREE.

Fascism=corporatism. Did any of your family give their lives fighting Fascist Italy, Nazi German and Imperial Japan? Corporations and self-serving elite also controlled their governments back in the day, but, it was no where near as blatant as it is today in this state, and in Amerika.

Learn who has gotten, and continues to get, very wealthy supplying the basic necessities of life that they do not even own. Don't stop with just CEMC if you want real and meaningful relief and change.
