if she's got a short in her house everyone i know including myself has a short in our house, every year we all have 2 extremely large electric bills, and for some reason it is always when daniel boone development is giving out that money to help people with their heat, everyone don't get that help, so they need to stop robbing people, i wish another electric company would come in here, i bet the cost would drop then.

Everyone I know has a huge electricity bill no matter what they do....it's not just Jackson Energy customers. IDK what is going on or what to do but everyone, myself included, cannot keep paying these prices. "they charge u what they want u too" ...truer words were never spoken.

My bill went up 210.00 more than last month!! We keep ours on 64 fliping degrees for cripes sake. When I called to complain I was told that it was because "we've had the coldest December on record"

my bill is 575.00, I am just sick over it.

How would you know if you have a short in your house? If that is their problem it might be mine. My electric bill was 615.00 last month, and that was just 1 month not 2, I really dread seeing it this month. I really do think they charge you what they want, but I want to know how to find out if you have a short, and if that would make your electric bill be 615.00 a month. Because if I get many more bills like this, I think I will find me a house where you can get on ku electric.

It highly doubtful that so many ppl have shorts in their houses...the energy company is taking advantage of us b/c we dont know how to read our meters or how to tell if theyre right or not.. theyre going to take our money until we stand up to them... but theyre going to keep taking advantage as long as we lay down and let them!

My bill this month was $255 (ku) and at the top of the bill it shows electricity charges before tax it was only $185 in electric used ..........u tell me that's a lot of taxes! If u pay attention to your water bill how it breaks it down water sewer taxes ext. The ku bill is that way too..... How much are you being over charged?

Boy I wish my electric bill was 255.00, or I would take one for 300.00, I don't get one under 290.00 and that is when you don't have heat or air on, I think its April or May and that is the only 1 I get that is 290.00, the rest of mine are usually 375.00 to 615.00, and it is just crazy. I think the people that are on KU electric are very very lucky, because the people that I know on it don't pay nothing like we do. I would say we are being way over charged.

You can kick your breaker box and use no electricity and still get a huge bill. There's going to be another raise in electrical services from Jackson Energy, another 4% will be aded to your bill. Problem: They have no competition, they have us by the balls because we have no alternative. Solution: Complain to congressman, senator and whoever else you can get to listen including the news chanels. I keep my heat at 64, hardly ever home and still I get a 517.00 bill. People can't pay these bills and Daniel Boone isn't helping every body in this county. Contact Rand Paul, demand an investigation. We need a break in this county.
No help

KU is no better. My bill doubled this month. They just use the colder months to jack up the bills higher. I live alone, don't use my stove, don't have a washer and dryer and only have my tv refrigerator, alarm clock and computer, at night don't even have lights on. They do this at least once or twice in the winter, also in the summer. Go figure.

if you get a short you can smell the smoke and see the flames.unless your drunk or passed out on drugs.then they pack out your ashes after your house quits burning.
