Someone help me out with this: but isn't there a law that says they do not have to give the money back to the customers? I read that somewhere a couple of weeks ago, but can't remember where.
You are right,there not going to give the customer(slave)a damn thing.Let's be honest this is not unlawful,this is criminal,period.Read the article carefully again,and tell me that the government,corporations,and media don't think we are stupid,also that they don't work with each other,government set's the regulations,corporations rob us,media feeds us bull$h!t,wake up!

Solar power works off minimal light from the sun as well as the heat, the new solar panels work hard with minimum sunlight for that very reason, especially with the gray skies here. Central Ohio is getting a lot of bad weather due to chemtrails being used to supposedly reflect back the sun in a very futile attempt to slow down global warming, but the use of this system is wreaking havoc on the current weather causing an upsurge of tornadoes and intense rainfall. We have trees dying here in central Ohio that are being poisoned by this atmospheric adding of chemicals, and two of these are known "heavy metal" elements. There is a video circulating on the internet called "What in the World are They Spraying?" Check it out, and you will see for yourself. This is NOT a conspiracy, this is reality. Many people here have never seen weather conditions like this ever in parts of Ohio and in the south as well. This process they are using does irreversible damage to whatever life exists in concentrated areas of spraying. AEP used to be a service utility, now they want to be a controlling power factor in everyone's lives, just like the Oil companies are attempting, and by the way, how is that investigation into high gasoline prices going Mr. Obama? Since the take down of Osama, that investigation has fallen off the back burner and onto the floor to be swept away, although I hope not. I suspect that lowering gas prices by Obama would be a much bigger coup than bagging bin laden, thus helping him get re-elected.
I find it very interesting that you mentioned this wasn't a Conspiracy, yet it is a rant. What does any of your rhetoric have to do with the article? These things you speak of may be True, yet how are the relevant? How does the weather know when to be Sunny or Not, I thought that was Nature doing its' job. Someone need to rein you in, Hopefully, that would be you. It's better to Keep your Mouth shut and Thought of as a Fool, than to Open it and Remove all Doubt. Hint Hint

As long as people keep allowing this type of Behavior to Occur, it's Unstoppable. I don't see the Power Companies ( or any other Company) stopping policies that Create revenue for themselves. Hint Hint

Let me see if i get this right,PUCO is giving AEP a week to answer some complicated questions on unlawful charges that PUCO already knew about?who is AEP going to provide more evidence to justify the charges too,the same state regulators,ridiculous ladies and gentlemen.AEP are utility nazi's who bullies middle class families with shut off notices,running up people's bills with out any justification.The poor families,regardless,are getting there electric shut off,leaving them in the dark for there food to spoil,people with children,i hear it all the time oh who cares about a bunch of welfare recipients.You don't understand,if we allow these greedy pigs to do that to those families,it can also happen to your family,don't think so,wait until hyper-inflation hits.You better think about it,and please people don't take the side of AEP,believe me they could care less about you or your family,they only care about there bank accounts and making you there debt slave.
Running up people's bills without any justification? How, exactly, does that happen? If you use it, pay for it, pretty damn simple. Like bailing out foreclosures, letting people skate on unpaid bills is massively unfair to those who pay their bills, the employees who, while keeping your power flowing, also expect to get paid, and the investors who expect a return on their investment. Spin your sob story somewhere else.

PUCO is being forced to by the Ohio Supreme Court. It's just going through the motions - I doubt very much will come out of this.
My own electric usage has gone down, but my bills have increased by about 30%.
