Too bad we cant vote the PSC out...Where is the comptition for WE Energies? It is time for a new company to come and kick them in the butts. Last year they made in operations was up 9% to $63.4 million, or 54 cents a share, from $58.2 million, or 49 cents, last year...and they need more $$$ from me? I think not! Oh well, we are screwed again.

Are these people appointed? Or are they elected?

If they are appointed, who appoints them to their position?

well alot of us are not even getting a 5 cent raise thats in 40 hours aweek, lets do the math, that is 2.00 in a week take out for tax's and you would have had a 1.25 raise in 40hours, and everything is going up, pay extra for your life, with what, this should be for people that pick up an extra 1,000 per month and start shaking down the street people that need your change and pay for nothing in the life they lead not even tax's...for ever person that give someone change 10 people x 99 cents x 8 hour day, that's right around 10.00 tax free per hour 80.00 in a day 30 days in a month + 2400.00 none taxable income we are working at the wrong jobs...x 12 months in a year aaa go south for the winter...sorry my rant

I did not want the Oak Creek, Elm Road Generating Station re-done, or the Kenosha Plant, P4, or the Two Rivers, and Point Beach Plants either. But WE Energies feels the need to keep up grading these plants and making us (the people) to pay for them!

We should ALL MOVE SOUTH FOR THE WINTERS!!!!!!!
Which is 10 months of the year here

What people don't seem to realize is that this is going to affect the prices of anything produced in this area, as well. If the manufacturers have to pay more to make their products, they're not just going to "suck it up" - they're going to raise the price of their products!

In the end, this only contributes to overall inflation - all while wages are tanking accross the board.

Thanks yet again, WE Energies!

Yes, we should ALL Thank WE Energies for the bad management!!!!
Who is in charge of budgeting and project planning? Seriously, did all the power plants in the state have to be rebuilt/retro fitted back to back? Not to mention the lawsuit with Bechtel over some $500 million that had to be arbitrated in court to I believe some $70 million. So We The People of WI take it UP THE BUTT AGAIN!

Time to move down South

Last fall, when WE Energies announced that they applied for an increase, they had a representative on one of Milwaukee's T.V. stations, & that knothead said that if we want to save money, we should (a). buy those fancy lightbulbs that no one can afford (b).Put plastic on the windows to keep the cold air out, and (c). shut the lights & appliances off when not in use.
THEN,...The idiot gave a list of why they needed an increase in their charges. And, do you know what was on the top of the list??? "A lack of energy usage"!!! And why is that??? Because we:(a).Bought those fancy lightbulbs that no one can afford,(b). Put plastic on the windows to keep the cold air out, and (c). shut the lights & appliances off when not in use!!!
I think someone should check the Public Service Commission's palms, to make sure they don't look greasy!
Until some serious housecleaning gets done in the PSC office, we'll be bending over & handing 'em the KY jelly.
