Post Progress Energy
We received our letter yesterday. Progress Energy was bought out by Duke Energy. I don't know anything about them. Between the banks and the power companies, it is hard to keep up with who is the big dogs these days. Hope we don't see the light bill going up!

Anyone know anything about Duke?

Duke has been around a long time, used to own their stock, paid a pretty good dividend.

How they are as a supplier I have no idea.

They said nothing would change as far as service. We will see. Who is your provider Max?

Rates have been increasing since I moved here but not out of line. .0844 kwh under 1000 kw, .1044 over for fuel and non fuel charges plus a $7 "customer charge" then add on storm charge, gross receipts tax, franchise charge and utility tax.

When I moved here I was surprised at how cheap electricity was. I dont know how it measures up to other places today but I expect its still inexpensive. We are getting an increase in 30-60 days however.

Yeah, ours went up some in the last few years. It still ain't bad (knocks on wood).

Hey Georgie! You reckon Sandy will put a hammer on the electric bill? Do you guys already have storm costs added?
