Public Utility Commission says power companies can’t cut off customers for non-payment

There is still a lot of uncertainty as to how expensive your power bill could be following the February freeze. 카지노사이트

The State of Texas’ Public Utility Commission met on Friday morning to discuss that topic, among others.

The commission decided that at this point they will not reprice the cost of energy bought during the storm.

A state independent market monitor found that the state’s electricity market overcharged ERCOT an estimated $16 billion dollars by leaving emergency pricing in longer than it should’ve been in place. That includes the natural gas being purchased to run electric power plants. 안전한카지노사이트

The money to pay this bill has to come from somewhere and it could come from electricity customers like yourself.

CPS Energy has said unless the utility gets relief from the federal government it would be difficult to offset the price for customers.

The meeting was run by Arthur D’Andrea, the new public utility commissioner, who was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott this week. 카지노사이트 추천

“Decisions were made about these prices in real time based on information that was available to everybody, to all market participants, and they did all sorts of things that they wouldn’t have done the prices were different and it’s nearly impossible to unscramble this sort of egg,” said D’Andrea.

Another item that was decided by the commissioners is that water and electric utilities will still not be allowed to be cut off for customer non-payment.
