Sure they are, but it's a matter of supply and demand. Do we really have a choice?

Don't run you a/c, keep your heat on 67. Turn off lights. And do not leave anything turned on or plugged in when not in use.

Energy bills for people would not be 1/2 of what they are if people weren't so lazy.

wage cuts and layoffs and cuts in benefits would save money and could be passed onto consumers

no one says you have to have electricity. disconnect and buy your own generator if you want. see how that goes.

You do know that Citizens does have to buy the electric first then it is sold to us. They do not generate the electric.

I live in a 3 bedroom house and my bill averages $160.00 a month. Crystal your bill shouldn't be that high I would consider moving. Its not Citizens fault your bill is that high something has to be wrong with the apt. Citizens is cheaper then Ameren. I also own a 5 bedroom home in Illinois (uses Ameren)and the highest bill so far has been $210.00 usually runs around $175 to $180. I don't want to see a utility rate raise but I'm just saying Citizens is not the highest.

it is when the people around here dont make squat for wages in this town and thats the truth.they are high I dont think the employees need to be making near as much as they do its ridiculous they steal from us to pay themselves.
