Whats FPL? I have NSEG and my bill went up 40% from last year. Now I did see something on the news about rate increases and I thought it only had to do with the companies that had to purchase more electricity not with everyone. Good lord milk, gas (oil), electric...you can't win.

We received our bill today and I thought two months ago it skyrocketed. We used less electricity and it went up again and when I say went up I mean to the tone of $285.00 for one month - for electric! Someone in Congress needs to step in as the utility companies are going nuts with these charges and before long people will have to sell whatever just to pay utility bills. Maybe just my opinion but last year at this time my bill was a shade over $100.00 so its gotten out of hand.

I do NOT buy my gas and electricity from National Greed - I have used Gateway for at least the past 10 years and have found them to be the be. I sign up for 6 month contracts with them. My gas rate is .589 per term & the electric rate is .08192.

WITHOUT the charge for the Delivery rates charged by National Greed, my bill with Gateway for the actual use would only have been $112.71.

BUT - when the Delivery charges of $81.80 are then added to the bill, the total bill came to $194.51!!!!

I live alone in a 3 bedroom house and only represent one person's usuage -but, I always keep my house warm during the day and only turn down the heat at night to 68 degrees.

My advice is to shop around and look at all the various companies that will supply your gas and electricity as National Greed is a big rip-off and does nothing for you.

I am talking just electric rate here as I use oil. We have NSEG but if I can shop around I will and I actually wrote to Chuck Schumer's office regarding this issue and I know he has looked into this already but not enough is being done. This bill is ridiculous!

The only draw back to getting your electric rates with an outside company, National Grid will end up charging you "Delivery Services" which is MORE than 100% of what you paid to the outside company!!!!!!

If anything should be looked at is the excessive "Delivery Services" that Nat'l Greed charges as the Public Service Commission that is SUPPOSE to be on the side of the consumer, is NOT doing their job by approving these high Delivery Services rates that Nat'l Greed is allowed to charge.

What they aren't making on selling the power , they increase transmission and delivery. Look at your bills for the last two years. Wholesale power costs have actually declined given a stagnant economy , so the utility increases the t and d rates.

We haven't seen anything yet. The northeast needs massive upgrades to it infrastructure, and that cost will be passed onto the rate payer thru increases in t and d.

The best way to lower your costs is to take an inventory of your usage and have the a firm come in and make your electrical power eaters consume less.

Chuck Schumer will beat a path to a TV camera any chance he gets. He supported Obama's "Cap and Trade" bill in 2009. If the republicans had not stopped it, your rates would be 50% higher.
