It would be nice if they would help their customers first. Its our money they are giving away.

I heard about that a couple of weeks ago. I understand that they want to do good things for the community, but giving away grant money while our utility bills continue to increase is rediculous.

You got that right. Wonder why the black community doesn't picket them for discrimination being it is white owned?

Probably because low income folks receive subsidies to pay for their light bill.

home of grace is a christian rehabilitation place. in vancleave. did each office give grant money? or was it one grant for every singing river outlet, because i think singing river services from the coast to near perry county. i ask because if it was lucedale branch of singing river, they could have used the grant money to put energy efficient bulbs in my bogger light cuz 10 bucks a month for a big flashlight is gettin a bit crazy.

How did this become a 'black' thing? For your information the power company is not "white owned". It is a not-for-profit, customer owned business. I will break it down for you since you don't seem to smart.....if you have power with them.....you are an owner just like anyone else that has power with them

I am a customer only. If I were part owner, there would be no gouging after a bad hurricane. I should have the right to vote against rate increases. It makes a profit or else it couldn't pay its employees and loan a million to the hospital plus provide grants.

Allen hedegarde was said to be a closet KKK member in the past. And he supported white supremacy. No big deal really but thats one of the reasons blacks are not on the SREPA board.

Right after Katrina, many people without power for two weeks were charged triple the regular rate. Myself included. They took advantage of a bad situation to gouge George County.

The month before Katrina, my light bill was an average of $89.00, always less than $100.00. Suddenly it skyrockets twice after Katrina to $168 and the next month about $189. I did the exact same thing with my air. Always on 78-79 temp, no lower. They took advantage of poor people to fill their pockets. And it is illegal and immoral.
