Enough is Enough! Our local energy company wants to increase rates by 14.2%! I can’t believe it! Well the Greedy keep getting greedier….isn’t that how it goes…..if this passes this may really be the year we just learn to swelter in the heat. They say it is the first increase in a quarter of a century but that’s absolute bologna! I can promise you my bills keep going up! I looked up the owners of our utility company that own Progress Energy and they are rich investment firms I guess Rich is never Rich enough for these folks…..
Here is the link to some of the primary owners of Progress Energy feel free to write them if you would like to share your 2 cents with them….somebody should that’s for sure. I know I plan too.
I got a .2 % raise for the last 5 years of work…thats all! Oh and did I tell you I work with children and education apparently an industry that is no longer valued or advocated for by the general population. It’s absolutely reprehensible the lack of financial concern that is put into educators and even sadly the top is often sucking up all the revenue even in the government sector.
So obviously I am not off grid at this time and have nowhere to hide at this point but if Progress Energy gets their way they will make off grid living look more and more appealing to me. This makes Revolution look more and more like real life!
How do you feel about the crazy rates utility companies are charging? Have you had it? Do you feel like I do? I feel like Enough is Enough you greedy investors! Thanks to all of my readers for listening to my frustration tonight but maybe you feel this way too!
