ANOTHER RATE INCREASE?!!!! I am a senior on a fixed income and my utility bill for August was $197.97!!! I live alone, ration my showers, don't even water my backyard. I don't entertain, and when I cook I use appliances that use less energy! My house is under 1400 sq. ft.(includes garage). In August my bill was $210.38! It seems I had a leak in my hoses, so I hired a plumber @$125. to replace the spigots, which totally cleared up the leak. My plumber said the meter was installed upside down. When I called LP&L about this, they refused to reinstall the meter. Their attitude is too bad, you have no choice but to use LP&L so get over it!... and I am on the so-called "level pay plan" and my bill is over $100. all year round!!! Some help! My friend in California pays $80.00 every two months for electricity. Why must consumers pay for loans borrowed from outside sources who refuse to repay them???? I question IF LP&L actually do read the meters????? Pretty soon, I will lose my house due to the inability to pay these RIDICULOUSLY INFLATED rates! AND THEY WANT TO STEAL MORE OF OUR MONEY!!!!!

One of the problems is that they have a monopoly. They need some competition!!!
