This is a Recording....

July 25th, 2007 at 09:46 am

I have gotten a message on my machine supposedly sent by my electric company that I will receive refunds on my next two electric bills of around 30 plus dollars each time. It seemed a bit odd that the electric company would send a recording to every household just to tell them about this refund. No reason for the refund was given. Yesterday, I talked to someone who had already received a refund, but had not heard any recording. So, I guess the whole thing is legitimate. It said something on her bill about fuel charges, so I guess they overestimated how much fuel would keep increasing or something. In any case, their machine told my machine that I would have some extra money. I appreciate it this time of year, especially since Hubby forgot to turn the thermostat up one day when I was out of town and it spent the long day trying to cool the house down to a low nighttime temp. And I keep forgetting to unplug some things when I'm finished. This refund combined with lower temps from all the rainy weather might help the summer electric bill to be an unusually smaller one. Since it is leveled, I will be interested in seeing what happens. I get excited over the littlest things....

    Mind if I ask who your electric company is?

    Cus my supplier sent me a letter informing me of a rate DECREASE that would extend from August thru end of year.

    Like yours, no explanation given.

    I was curious if this was the result of some settlement with the state after being caught gouging or price-fixing or something like that. So i called them and politely asked why. Boy, what a run-around i got. No one seemed able (or wanted to) give me a straight answer. Something's up, but for now i'll just enjoy the cheaper bills.

    Fern: Our electric company is Entergy. I believe they are in parts of surrounding states also, but I don't know if the refund is just in Texas or more widespread. Awesome that you're getting a decrease for a few months!

    My supplier is Levco, on Long Island (tho i live in CT). I don't feel good about using them, though, becus they rely a great deal on coal plants, which is the main reason we have so much smog here in in the northeast.
