How timely!

Looks like my post about staying warm on the cheap in the winter was more timely than I thought. I check the news today and see the following: “PGW seeks $100 million hike.” The article goes on to explain that this would mean an increase of about 8%, or over $150 additional per year per customer. If everyone actually paid them it might work. This is meant to take effect on Febraury 20, but the appeals process could delay it until, well, just in time for next winter to begin.

    Which is when PECO would again seek a hike, this time adding another $20 million to it while threatening to shut everyone off who doesn’t pay the exorbitant cost of heat.

    PGW isn’t going to get their hike on the prices because Pennsylvania government, which has to approve their hike, isn’t going to pass it. This is because they do not believe raising the rates will solve PGW’s long term issues (which, yes, probably does have to deal with people not paying them)

    I heard this on xpn, on a good note, they also secured a bunch of money to help out lower and middle income families this winter. They are also running free workshops on how to save money on the heating costs.
