COMMENTS FROM GOOD PEOPLE:
What's going to happen to the price of electricity when all of these electric cars become popular?
Hate to be the one to break it to everyone but the reason for the high power bills is: Carbon Tax....remember that? Remember that they talked about this and they said they didn't pass it....well they didn't actually pass it but they are charging it! They just are not admitting it! Do a google search! We are not the only area and the guy at the power company is full of crap! Our area? It is all across the country in all climates! Everyone has had a huge power bill and little has changed, as a matter of fact because of the economy many have suffered and even had to wear extra clothes! But, their bill doubled! Carbon tax, of course they are not ever gonna tell you! Imagine what the people who are for a carbon tax think now? You like saving the earth and paying those big bills? Still wantg a carbon tax? Not me!
I have to agree, BTES are the rudest people that i have ever dealt with... My Bill has doubled also, I have cut back almost to the point of freezing to death at times this winter, and to no avail... these bills are outrageous, mine was 548 dollars, the month before it was 512, i just dont get it?!?!?! These are hard times for alotta folks, and im sorry , but i know somebody out their, somewhere has the power to step in and say enough is enough, and actually do something about this... But yea, BTES would cut a dieing mans ventilator off and not bat an eye... very very very rude people to deal with... what are we to do? its not like we can take our business elsewhere.. right...
- BTES IS THE SAME WAY, THEY COULD CARE LESS IF YOU HAVE ELECTRICITY OR NOT...RUDEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER DELT WITH..THEY DO THIS BECAUSE THEY KNOW IT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TO HAVE...THEY KNOW THEY CAN GET BY WITH IT...
- Now, I know there are people posting here that have btes power,phone,cable,internet. The only thing that both sides of town care about is their pocketbooks. Who will be the first to rid yourself of local Gov. monopoly by letting BHC in on your action to remove your dependence from local GOV.provided services and go back to private businesses? To do so will put action behind just what you,(not others) preach about the federal Gov.
- Did any of you read the BHC today? There's a front page story about a Tennessee republican legislator by the name Mae Beavers of Mt. Juliet suggesting that the federal gov. give Tennessee billions of dollars for Medical insurance and close their eyes as the state of Tennessee spends the billions as they see fit. Now that's republican leadership in action. Who on this site would not hold the FED. accountable if they did such a stupid,idiotic,ignorant thing?
- When Nashville received the first billion of federal tax, by the time the money trickled down through a hundred different hands to the patient, there may be a thousand left.
They have us by the B....s and they know it ! We cut our heat off for one month and used a gas fireplace and still got a high bill Some states have a law where they cannot cut you off in the winter but not Tn and Va. They don't care if you freeze to death. They give you two days after you get your cut off notice in the snail.mail. We once asked for three days for pay day and they said NO ! I moved from Fredericksburg VA and they gave you three options of power companies you wanted to join. We need to picket all power companies in this area. They are heartless greedy crooks!
I also understand this horrible price gouging that the TVA has made all the powers boards to do, remember the following:
Tennessee TVA Coal Ash Disaster Dec 22 2008
and now the TVA is placing the cost of cleaning up their mess on those who are barely able to survive.
I myself is in that same situation like others here in the Tri-Cities.
The home I live in is mine and if I had the Money, I'd buy all the solar panel equipment and use it to produce the energy to run my home.
the last two months my electric Bill was close to 300.00 dollars and it is getting really way out of hand.
First it's the local oil jobbers and now it's the TVA!!!!
- When we the people get the control freak Government off our back and convert to wind and solar power for our homes the big Government monopoly power companies will go the way of the steam engine and whale blubber lamps. Can't wait.
“By not increasing base prices, TVA expected to have a slight net operating loss in the first quarter,” Chief Financial Officer John Thomas said. “As sales increase during the winter and summer months, we will return to a positive net income, to be reinvested in the power system.” TVA makes no profit and reinvests all net income in the power system and other infrastructure. TVA receives no tax money."-TVA
