I find it hard to feel too bad because lower electricity bills have affected some peoples profit margin. It's greed like this that is killing America. Energy providers should rejoice at the lessening of the load on the consumer during this recession. I know families who cannot afford electricity living in the dark because of high power bills and intransigent policies at utilities companies. Forget profits and help people now.

These ripoff artists at Exelon are the type of people we should toss in our cars, drive over to the ghetto, push them out, lock the doors, scream ethnic slurs on a loudspeaker and drive away really really fast.

Keep teaching and encouraging us to be more energy conscious and ease the demand.

Then moan about decreasing revenue.

Next thing will be rate increases as a reward to us for being conservative...

You all deserve a rate increase... I want to see 25 cents a KWH by the year end.
