What we truly need are people in Washington DC who give a rats' @$$ about the people and a little less concern for the critters. Nonetheless, best I can tell Jackson Energy is approximately 20% higher than KU. I found, using a Google search, that KU is around 8 cents per kilowatt and Jackson Energy around 9.6 cents per kilowatt. So, if you had a $100 KU bill it would be $120 Jackson Energy, $200 KU would be $240 Jackson. A big difference, but not the calamity you would think. And of course, KU is going to stay in the cities, where service is much easier (thus cheaper) to provide. Someone may have a better idea about the cost per kilowatt.

Jackson RECC is a lot higher. You can't just compare hourly rates you have to figure in surcharges and other fees too.

True, but I think your referenced chart is a bit dated. It indicates a difference of 40%+/-. Based on what I can find, Jackson Energy is currently somewhere around 20% higher. I think KU has to charge higher rates now as a result of environmental controls that have been installed. Not sure of any of this. And, regardless, if it is just 20% that is a big difference.
