It seems to be happening everywhere. I talked with some people from the Lexington area who experienced the same thing.

It is happening in Louisville too.

I have a relative and frienda who live in Louisville, one is single and gone most of the time and his bill was over $300. Another is married but both work all day and their bill was over $500.

I remember, the new company which took over the utility companies in Louisville and Sheblyville made a statement to the public in which the bills would not increase....


Someone should play the video of their little speech and then show the comparisons of the bills before and after speech.

They know we need the utilities, so they will raise to any price they want.
another victim...

We need to start by trying to get a news interview with the Wave 3 news trouble shooter. Then we all need to get a petition signed and send a copy of it to the state energy commissioner and Govener. That would get the ball rolling. Shelby Energy is robbing all of its customers and getting buy with it, it is time we as hard working Americans to make a stand and fight this cesspool of wrong doing!

You all are all so dumb! They're a cooperative-- not for profit! They have the same people to answer to as any other company so they can't 'rip anyone off'... If your a member and your convinced you don't have anything running get an energy audit done. Somethings going on- they can't charge you for energy you're not using!
surely not

I used to be a Shelby Energy customer! And YES!!! Shelby Energy are crooks!!! There needs to be an investigation!!! I now have KU, live in a BIGGER house, and my electric bill is like $200 less than it was when I had Shelby Energy!!! No one can afford to live anywhere if they have Shelby Energy! Everyone is getting charged at least $200 more than they should be every month! Why isn't someone looking into them??? Shelby Energy ripped me off for thousands of dollars over the years!! They should be made to pay everyone back that they have ripped off! Someone is getting rich off of poor people's money!! Why isn't anyone doing anything about it? They have charges on their bills that you never hear of on other electric bills. They do their best to confuse you, and give you lame excuses of costs of coal, and other charges. I could see if there was only a small difference in electric price between them and KU, but the difference is in the hundreds!

I agree, someone get with the Wave 3 Troubleshooter, and have them start an investigation! Someone with the cahoots and smarts to defend themselves.

Has there ever been an investigation of these crooks yet? I too lived with Shelby Energy as my electric company for 7 years! We have a large family, and our bill during those 8 years was usually $400.00-$450.00 every month. It was a struggle during those times to keep the electric on. We have now had KU for almost 3 years, and our bill is ALWAYS under $200.00 a month, even when we are not so careful about turning off lights and such. When we had Shelby Energy, we had to be extremely careful all the time, and made sure to turn off lights when coming out of a room, and had to work hard at conserving electric. But to no avail, we STILL had a bill that was over $400.00.

They put this huge "enviromental surcharge and fuel adjustment" on their bills that total around $200-$250 a month. Our enviromental with KU is only like $5.00 a month.

Over 8 years times, I believe they ripped me off for around $25,000. And they are doing that to hundreds of people. If they did this to 100 people, that would be around $2,400,000. They are making millions of dollars off of people. They should be made to pay this money back to everyone!

Capitalism,is being ignored.Greed and hand outs have created the worst administration we have ever experienced in our lifetimes.Every one wants to feed off the taxpayers that pay taxes and work.
The electric bills simply reflect the need of corporations needing electricity,the EPA setting impossible standards for the coal fired generators of the power companies.Prices going up.
KU better
