Yes, their rates are too high and yes they do rob people.....but we have nothing to use as leverage to petition them. I don't think enough people can/will say ,"either lower the rates, or you can shut me off.". We have no other power company we can threaten them with. Unless we have some way of switching to AEP. Electric companies have pretty much got us. Unless we can come up with a few thousand dollars and get ourselfves off the grid.

Well, we supposedly own RECC. So, we all agree to downsize, take a loss and lower our bills. Maybe we can hire new managers and let their modest salaries be their only compensation. I think we have some less than honest foxes guarding the hen house over there.

Or, we could take pitch forks and torches, march down there and close OUR business, sell out to AEP.

YOU PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST THIS COMPANY it is a local owned company..they purchase their electricity rights from A.E.P. and are not charge that much for it i worked for them... they are ripping you people their customers off..if you don't take a stand now it is just going to get much worse!!!

they are planning a 30% rate increase every four months for the period of 2 years..do you realize just how much the average household bill will run.

I say we run out the management and turn it over to AEP. We own it. We've paid for the infrastructure. I'm sure they'd be more than happy to inherit it. But, of course, we'd all need some discounts.

So you think the AEP bills are low, I think not.

Got to be lower than what we pay now. Take the costs of an AEP bill and add in enough to run a company plus keep up hoity toity lifestyles of those at the top. What you get is an already high power bill doubled or worse.

Both companies are running over their customers. Neither of them are low, and I'm sure you all have seen Obama say that electric rates would sky rocket through the roof. I've heard he didn't mean to make that slip up. But, he said it and that clip gets shown on TV fairly often.

Looks like we'll just have to eat the rich. There's more of us than them. They're control is a mere delusion. They have it because we let them have it. That's why they're so paranoid. Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean we're not out to get you.

AMEN SISTER.....PREACH ON...Tell em' about it..Also the politicians in Frankfort are just as bad.. Now RECC is on the radio crying Ooooooo Hooooooo Hoooooooo the PSC granted a raise to East Ky Power and we (RECC) want you to call your Rep. in Frankfort, and Washington DC and tell them " This is not fair, we can't afford this." Ooooooo Hoooooo Hooooo if I remember correctly RECC was just granted a raise a short time ago, and they sure weren't worried about us then..I believe they said it would raise the avg. bill about 9.00 dollars....Thats strange...My bill went from less than 200.00 to over 600.00 per month.

Why would they say anything? They aren't going to argue their case. They have no case. Right now, a few people at the top have carte blanch to make as much money as they can before the whole house of cards comes down.

Conservation doesn't matter. Your meter reading doesn't matter. They use an estimate. But I doubt it's an accurate estimate of your use as much as an estimate of what they think you will just shut up and pay without calling them on it.

They are corrupt and I would love to find out that there had been an ongoing investigation for the last few years. Nothing would tickle me more than a front page shot of people being led out in handcuffs.

Please tell me where to start and I will be the first in line. If we the people don't take a stand and come against this company we are sunk. The big Sandy RECC is abusing and taking advantage of the people.

Start with a petition and picketing them get the media involved this company is not going to want that kind of attention towards their company.
and do not back down from them if you do you will give them the upper hand.and one person can not do this alone..it takes a community or group of people to stand together..if you want lower bills your going to have to show this company that you people are tired of GETTING RAPED by these company.do you know that r.e.c.c never reads the actually meter the guess it the bill you are paying probably really isn't that high.the one thing that this cooperation wasn't counting on was you people calling their bluff.this is the only way you are going to have any say in what happens to your electric bills is to band together.
