EVEN WITH RATE INCREASES MY BILL GOES DOWN AGAIN
 
We live in a world where people prefer to complain than be proactive for their own benefit.  I just got my new ebill from the BPUB.  It is down $43.00 from the same period last year.  I believe it was December or November when I did the last energy efficiency upgrades.  My bill has gone down every month since then.  I suspect next month will be even lower and every month through the bill I receive in September until my savings hopefully reach $60 for the month.  It will probably take about 2 1/2 years for the savings to pay for the upgrades.  Then the savings are mine.  For the repairs I borrowed the money interest free for a year.  I pay $147 a month.  I make my last payment in December. 
 
If your bill is going up it is because you are unwilling to make your home more energy efficient.  Brownsville and Texas has programs to help the poor make their home more energy efficient.  People should put their energy into helping the poor access these programs instead of complaining.
