Re: Electric Bills
I have Tri-County REC (co-op) at my camp, so no other options were ever made available, as to alternative suppliers.
Big deal here at home with PPL as our supplier, since we've been bombarded with alternatives for the past year or two. Having looked them over, decided to stay with PPL, so no shocks or flim flams as many have complained about, who apparently opted for a variable rate with some other source?
As for being switched and having no knowledge of having approved any switch, went thru that two years ago with the Verizon bill for camp. Some outfit I'd never heard of, took over the long distance portion of that bill.
Think it's called "slamming", where third party entities somehow horn-in on existing utility bills without the actual approval of the account holder.
PUC and the Attorney General are both looking into the variable rate elec. bills. Contact them with complaints, as well as your previous supplier.
