big surprise...monopoly company screwing it's customers! have you seen NE REMC w/ their $15 customer charge? let's investigate them! i thought that's what our bills are...a customer charge! how can these companies just take from us. they must be run by elected officials, just like our property taxes.
stop giving so much away to illegals and people that can work, but choose not to! i'll pay what i owe, but i hate paying for other's that are just lazy!

Indiana needs to change its way of treating people who want to generate their own electricity. Folks who invest in personal wind generators should be given a better deal from the utilities and their politicians.
Currently,[no pun intended], Indiana ranks at the bottom in all categories of personal energy generation buy-back programs and incentives.
Oh wait, I forgot. Mitch wants to help a couple of big companies build wind generator farms and protect his deal with the coal companies for the big gasification plant in southern Indiana.
Now I understand why we need to build another toll road, even one that would go nowhere except to his coal buddies' front door. Gee, we just finally finished reclamation projects to clean up the mess down there left by the coal companies from back in the '50's.
I hear Chicago folks wonder if Indiana would be so pro BP if they were dumping that "clean" sludge into Fall Creek. Kind of a stab in the back huh Mitch. Illinois is your partner in the coal deal. Politics....sheesh!

Since your in an REMC area, you can elect the board members! Go Vote! Also, the IURC is requiring more information to be shown on the bills than it has in the past. There are a lot of charges or credits that change from month to month or quarter to quarter, you just have to be shown them now. They can't fix them into the basic rates because they change. If you don't like how your company spends money on the cost of electricity, let the IURC know you want deregulation. http://www.ai.org/iurc/index.html

I just wonder why the credits are issued in $5.00 increments and not starting until February. It seems like things could be taken care of in a more timely manner. But then again of course we have no choice in what provider we use for our electric power so we are kind of stuck, aren't we?

The White County REMC charges a residence a $25.00 facilties charge per month and then .09000 per kWh! When I asked them if they were regulated by the IURC they said "not anymore".

You Indiana Folks should NOT complain about electricity prices. I just moved here from San Francisco (go 49ers) and I was paying three times what I am paying here.

I'm sure the same thing could be said for real estate prices, gas, groceries and just about anything else you could think of.

How much did this grand sum of $15. really cost the LaPorte County taxpayers. The LaPorte County Attorney filed this. How much did he collect for his work?????
