Harrisburg deregulated electric rates.

Now you see where your electric bill money is going.

On upgrading transmission and generation here in PA like the justification for rate increases always is?

Nope, on acquisitions.

Good going Rendell and your demopublican cohort bastiges for throwing away electric utility regulation.

What choice do you have?

One party supports free markets and big business making a killing profit.

The other party supports high energy prices to force you to conserve energy to save the the almighty environment and the planet.

Who you gonna beeotch to?
