Light Bill Comparisons Usage Is The Key


When real discussions take place good information can come out if everyone be true to themselves. The following is a conversation I started on Facebook and some good and valuable information was shared. I hope the conversation continue because good information is always needed. Funny how folk who claim to be about what is right get mad when the real information is brought forward. I refuse to allow folk to mislead folk with half-trues and mess that they post on Social Media.

Regi Thigpen I live in Raleigh and our bill average around $90-$120 a month. Someone is home at least 20 hrs a day and we don’t try to conserve on usage and yours is 147 kwh and ours is 37 kwh per day. For some reason your usage is really high.

Curmilus Butch Dancy II Now this is what I am talking about. Until you know the whole story one can not just go by a bill and not look at usage.
Someone is in my home 24 hours a day every day and my heat is running in the winter so my pipes will not freeze and the air condition is running in the summer so it will not be hot….

Curmilus Butch Dancy II Michael Collins Again your usage can be measured just like I posted here so until one look at the usage and the bill and can prove they have been charged for false usage then it ain’t no need to complain.
Even if they jack up whatever they are in control over how much they charge but I don’t think they change rates without letting the customers know ahead of time.

Curmilus Butch Dancy II That is another thing. In cities like Rocky Mount Electric, natural gas and other all in the same bill so when folk say electric it ain’t always electric. In many cases it was the gas that was the highest.

Curmilus Butch Dancy II My dad electric bill is 84.00 but when I had them to come out and to bring him some gas the bill to fill up the tank was almost 800.00. When he went to pay the bill they told him he could pay some of it and my daddy is the type of person who is going to pay it all. Now everyone couldn’t do that and even if they could some would have take advantage of the offer to pay it over a period of time.

  1. The main story is people that the city of Rocky mount use the electric of who they get it from and re-sale it to the residents of the city at a hire cost then they played for it, and this is one of the main purpose of how the city pay there bills. Now that is the truth.
    Raleigh for instance is a big city and of course a big tax revenue for them so it’s not a problem for them so much.
    Let’s look at residential real estate construction if it’s homes or apartments here in rocky mount, well everything is electric and if the electric rate is high then the natural gas then the home owner or tenner is going to have problems. What we need is a negotiating time to go to duke or who ever and fight for a lower rate the city of Rocky buy for now. And what ever happen to the rate 5 to10 percent cut the city said it was going to give us???
    Look I love rocky mount and the state of north carolina as a whole and would live to see rocky mount prosper and continue to grow but I all so know the we lost residents and business’s due to high cost utilities. Think for a moment how can the city grow when there losing residents and business’s to high cost utilities.
