O.K.,...Dollar store T.P. it is!!! It should be the used, recycled type though, right????? We have to save the environment!(Tree hugging, I think they call it). I'm sure that the PSC will understand if we utilize used T.P. when "Decorating" their offices. They know we must conserve our resources, because,...THE DAMN ENERGY BILL'S GOING UP!!!

Hey, Amigo,...I just got a brilliant idea!!! If you see a tanker truck, with a sign on the back that says, "Yesterday's Meals On Wheels",...FLAG HIM DOWN!!! He should have more than enough to decorate these offices!!! Who knows,...Maybe for a couple bottles of Bud, he might even loan us the truck , so we can make our delivery without having to transfer the "Load". & if he asks what we need it for, we'll just say, "OUR DAMN ENERGY BILL'S GOING UP!!!

You ask a good question. Here's the answer.
There are at least 4 other power companies in the state.
Alliant energy
Madison Gas & Electric
Northern states power
Wisconsin Public Service
We are not allowed ACCESS to them.
The competition is there.
We, as customers, now need ACCESS to them in order to TRULY operate in a FREE MARKET.

I should also mention that 40% of our nations electrical needs originate from coal fired power facilities.
The most ECONOMICAl way to get the coal to market is by RAIL.
With recent increases in oil prices, count on the railroads to pass on the elevated diesel costs to the power plants who then pass it on to.....guess WHO.....

Walker has frozen my wages for the last 5 years. WE CEO's need to feel it in their pocketbook as well; they need a pay decrease it is long over due! My bill is way to high already. I thought the PSC was going to stand up for us but they caved again. As usual the residential will pay more than the businesses. Oak Creek sells water to the wealthy GOP in Waukesha and the people of Oak Creek will have their water costs go up because of it. How many different ways can they stick it to us? The public needs to band together against this. Write to the PSC today and let them know this is not fair. I can't give any more than I already have done.

I moved up here from the south where the energy was more expensive and less dependable. Until you had it like that ... quit complainng you sound like a bunch of spoiled children. Try to provide your own energy cheaper. You guys don't know how well you have it. I'll pay a little more to keep what I have when I want or need it. Go WE ENERGIES...You Rock!

You are on the right track with your comments but here's more depressing news...We already have competition to WEenergies.
The problem is that we aren't allowed access to them.
There are at least four other electric service providers in the state.
Nothern states power.
Wisconsin public service.
Madison gas and electric and alliant energy.
But you are only allowed to get service from the provider in your area. IE: if you live in madison,you can't get service from wis public service because wis public service serves the green bay area and not the madison area. Wis public service may have lower rates than MD&G but you aren't allowed to "shop" around for the best electrical rates.
We are what's called in economic circles,"captive customers". This is the textbook definition.
