CITY COMMISSION DROPS BALL ON BPUB RATES

The new city commission has been in place long enough to have acted on the BPUB rates.  Now my house is highly energy efficient.  I have taken advantage of all of the rebates.  Here is my electric part of the bill due.  Look at how much lower my electric use is than my neighbors.  It is energy efficiency.  It is money in the bank.  It is actually lower than the Brownsville average.

The unit cost for the surcharge is actually down from a high, but the current rate is still historically high.  With natural gas flowing at record rates, and windmill energy coming on board, there is no reason for the fuel surcharge.  My fuel surcharge is lower than most because my home is energy efficient.  You know an extra $50.00 a month can help a lot of families.  It is time the fuel and energy charge come to an end.

Back to bed.  I was working using several screens and had to stop as the head started to feel like it is going to explode.
