I'm sorry I have no tears for these companies. They have the technology to put the lines under ground in areas storms hit often. The point is when the
company advertises it's FMR (Fair Market Rate) Which is what they print on your statement. If that rate is 009.5 per KW that is the price. Thats what
you pay. It doesn't say your price is based upon a VMR (Variable Market Rate) Unless you signed a contract then thats on you good luck. If your paying
the advertised rate for the year or summer or term then thats the rate period. If the power company cant provide you that service why should you pay
for that service if you did not use the power? To increase the power rate after a outtage to compensate for lost revenue when the consumer didn't use
the power is down right theft by deception period!
Let me break it down so some can wrap their mind around what is happening.
"If" you go to McDonalds and order a Big Mac and a McNuggets and they tell you they don't have any Big Macs but they have the Mcnuggets but the
McNuggets cost $1.25 more than normal to make up for the loss caused by them not having the Big Mac..Get the picture...
Just because you have access to power and you pay for power you shouldn't be charged more per kw after the power outtage comes back on to compensate
for the revenue the power company lost because they failed to up grade infastructure or bury lines. These companies are not in the red..
The kicker is the GOVERNMENT has given them LEGAL ACCESS TO THESE PRACTICES!
