Look at all these crybabies! If you don't like how much something costs than don't use it. Electricity isn't a right. It's a luxury. Why don't you cut down on those expensive Cell Phone Bills, and NFL Sunday Ticket packages before you complain about electric prices. If you don't want to pay the price than don't use it!!

Someone needs a diaper change. You are a crybaby and apparently a racist as well. Tisk tisk tisk. You sound like some redneck complaining about the government this and the government that. Fact is if you don't like how much something costs than don't use it. PPL isn't holding a gun to your head to use their electricity. Verizon doesn't hold a gun to your head a have you make phone calls. How exactly are you being F'D? How do you have it so bad? Because you have to pay an extra $25 a month in electricity? Get over yourself. "Oh My"...more like Oh Cry...go get your racist *** a diaper change a quit your ridiculous crying!

Facts? When have you ever provided any facts? The only 2 facts you have proven on here is that 1. Your an idiot and 2. Your a Crybaby. Don't quit your day job Crybaby "Detective". You shouldn't be worried who I am or what I do. You need to worry about when your next feeding is or who is going to change your stinky pants! People like you exist solely for my amusement!

I'd be willing to bet that you could take your electric bill, go to their website to use the energy analyzer, and monitor your usage. This feedback would probably allow you to make up at least half of any increase by conservation alone.

I sort of see it like gas prices. No one has any incentive to conserve when it is at $2 a gallon. Put it up to $4 and look out. Years of CAFE standards and government regulation couldn't do what a price spike did. Make Americans see a better way.

People will not value that which the do not pay for (or pay full price for).

Also, even after the rate increase, PPL will still be cheaper than PECO and Met Ed.
Hmmmm

all the drunks and addicts will have a little less to spend on drugs and booze (provided some welfare program doesn't help them out).
PPL should be regulated

Electricity should be regulated. Why? Because it's cheaper when regulated, even with the constant granting of increases. Gouging was prevented somehat by regulation.
Now that deregulation is here, watch for Enron-style gimmicks in the next five years. Watch electric rates quintuple. All you will hear is "free enterprise" and "supply and demand" and "we need profits to invest in upgrading the infrastructure, blah, blah, blah", and all the other b**lcrap. Just like the oil companies.
Unfortunately, as another poster mentioned, the only way to ease the raping is by buying PPL stock (which I just cant bring myself to do).
