Has ANYONE noticed the breakdown of your bill? It's ridiculous!

For example: You have a 'basic service charge','consolidated billing','standby charge','adjustment from 'normal' weather', delivery, system benefits charge, tariff surcharge, legacy transition chrge, incr state assessment. What the HELL is all this?!!!

Folks, we are being systematically RAPED!

Thoughts?

Over paid employees, no new infrastructure, ect,, yeah they pork us. We have niagara fall and NYS should have the cheapest electric bills, but NYS power commission who allow national greed to overcharge us are appointed people, not elected. Nice perk. All the utility companies have lobbying scumbags who take care of the appointees! Complain to price andrew cuomo and see if he can explain this racket?

We also have a few massive nuclear power plants upstate on the lakes and one downstate on the Hudson. The power company's used to own them but ditched them due to all the loser enviro freaks, lawsuits etc. So now we must all pay. Our power is being hijacked. Thanks to all the liberal, whack job, no nuke morons.

You should come move out of there. In the South your power bill is a power bill not a car payment.

The longer you stay there pretending "everything's wonderful" the longer you will suffer and be sick in NY.

Why on earth would telephone poles have anything at all to do with the electric company?

Telephone and power lines occupy the same poles along with cable tv sometimes. Some people refer to all poles as "telephone poles" and some people refer to all poles as "power poles". Not sure but that may be the case here.
