something is up i haven't recieved my bill for this month yet but last moths was nearly 500.00 dollars and i cut back on my heat from 72 degrees to 68 degrees to see if my bill goes down, if it don't go down i am going to be very mad, i seen where TVA said they are charging everyone .69 cents more on their bill for the Ash spill (Its not my fault that they had an ash spill so therefore i shouldn't have to pay for it) but i can guarantee that they are charging more than that. If my bill is as high as it was last month i think i will go and do what the old time settlers did before electricity. ;) GOD bless

My bill last winter was 165 bucks this winter it's 300.00 I called and ask one of the employee's they said it sounds about right to me, of course they say that to everyone. I am wondering why rates haven't dropped since we aren't in a drought this year. I asked if the rates have went up and the bitch said not yet. I was like WTF not yet I mean should we all just work for the Electric company or something. I don't see rates dropping since we been getting dumped by rain and snow this year. but next year when we have a dry season the rates will go up and never go back down its just an excuse to raise our rates. Electric and Water should be free, Hell my people fought for this country and they'd roll over in their graves to think I am getting screwed like this.

you know what someone drives and what they, should not mean they don't have a right to be upset over a bill...jealous much....the thing is that when your light bill is almost as high as your mortage there is something wrong and things need to change its just not here is Sevierville, its everywhere TVA is supply power to, we are paying for the ash spill and we are paying for all the lawsuits that TVA has gotten from the ash spill, i think its unfair that we have to pay for TVA negligence, i don't own a jaguar or do i carry a coach bag, but if i did i still have every right to complain about my electric bill if its too high.

i didn't miss the point, you didn't state that she said she couldn't pay her bill, you just made a remark about her fussing about her bill...so i am not the dumb one here, i am just stating that no matter how much money you have and what you drive should not exclude you from being able to complain about your electric bill, now if i have misunderstood you i apoligize, but how i read it, you never said the woman could not pay her bill, just that she was complaining about it.:)

go to the electric company, go to customer service and ask for a printout of your usage history. The printout will be of the past year. Go to your meter and write down the meter usage and compare it to your last months bill and present bill. I am very certain NOONES meters are getting checked they are just estimating it to be whatever they want. If from your checking you find their reading are in fact wrong, take your info in and speak with a manager/supervisor and ask to have it corrected. If they do not do it request an audit for further proof. If still no changes go over the managers head. They can not refuse to fix their mistakes if u have the proof. If everyone does this MAYBE we can all stop getting ripped of so easily. I picked up my printout today and am going to record the meter EVERY DAY so they have no excuses when i provide the evidence that i am being over charged.
