The problem I have been told is that Citizens buys their electric from Amren. With Citizens being the "middle man" they have to put their "mark up" on the electricity which they purchased from Amren, Therefore, Citizens customers are getting screwed and having to pay higher electric bills. But on a lighter note as a Citizens Electric customer, You own a part of the company. Don't that just make you feel so much better about paying the higher rates?

They get the power from Ameren at a significant discount, they could sell it to you at the exact same price Ameren would, and make a tidy profit.

The problem is they are government authorized monopolies and always charge the maximum price the law allows.

How many KWH are you using. Make sure your bill is accurate. Then calc what you are paying per kwh.

Our electric bill last month was $411.00 !!! Ridiculous ! The thermostat was set too OFF approx 70% of the month and our household is energy conscious with turning off lights etc. My neighbor's bill was over $500.00 with a one person household. Not fair but what can we do when Citizen's is our only option. Citizens is known as Rapists in our neck of the woods ...

Thanks to the sky high rates of Citizens Electric, the higher county tax rates, miles of gravel roads, and inflated property tax valuations in the western end of the county I am really regretting buying a house in Ste. Gen County.

Every person I ask about citizens tells me their yet to see a bill under 500 this year. My cheapest so far this year was around 460. My house is just under 1300 sq. ft. I've been told my bill is more than double what it should be.
