It’s mind boggling that no main stream media talking about this. This is worse than the gas prices. Electric rates are outrageous this year. “Zero inflation” Biden is on the case…..

I'm in flordia in a 1700 sq/ft ranch "newer" house. My fuuckin utilities bill is around 500 a month.

I am in shock coming from the midwest.

Florida has some of the cheapest electricity in the nation. 11.4c/KWH.

You’re doing something wrong. Your house must not be insulated very well or you keep it at 60F in the summer.

My house here in the upper Midwest is twice the size of yours and my highest bills, gas/electric combined, rarely touch 500. In addition to the house I heat a garage as big as some people’s homes. But it is all very well insulated.

I literally watched them demolish a power plant on route 5 in Holyoke MA a few years ago. I knew that day it would come back to bite us.It was coal burning and constantly under attack and called the dirty 5 by libtards.The plan to destroy energy independence has been veiled under the guise of environmentalism at the cost of sanity. Peole will freeze here in New England. Well some anyways. We will become Venezuela real fast.
Imagine electing psycho Maura Healy as governor. She will definitely nationilize the grid. Also I think Eversource buys electricity from Socialist Canada too. So whelp we are screwed.

Massachusetts Energy Companies Announce 64% Increase in Electricity Rates Beginning November 1st
[link to theconservativetreehouse.com (secure)]


National Grid has announced a 64% increase in electricity rates effective November 1st. Eversource is anticipated to announce a similar rate increase to National Grid.

Thanks to Joe Biden’s energy policies, which includes the massive export of natural gas in LNG form, domestic prices for natural gas have skyrocketed and will continue increasing as production is further shut down by regulation.

We are helping the EU survive their sanction driven energy crisis by sending them natural gas (LNG format), while simultaneously forcing Americans to pay more in order to maintain the EU export.

The natural gas is being shipped to Europe, which means low stock and price hikes for Americans. Electricity is also produced with natural gas, so those rates go up too.

My electric company just raised their rates by 112 percent as of September 1st. I posted from New Hapmpshire,I was already paying 204/ month.
Guess what? I have not gotten the end-of-the-month bill yet. But I shut down the pool and the heating season oil tank is only 2/3 full. 4.73 a gallon of heating oil. With a 275-gallon tank.
Yikes and I still have to order a thousand dollars of wood for the stove.

Massachusetts is an interesting state. It is liberal socially but not like extreme liberal like other states. Fiscally… not so much which is why it tends to elect republican governors. It nice to have a republican governor working with a democratic state legislature to keep either from getting too powerful… creates a tug of war type of management.

FPL is in the bottom 25% of electric companies for cost per KWh, meaning 75%+ charge more per KWh.

That's not opinion, it's easily verifiable fact. Lots of resources on the internet will verify that.

You must live in an ancient house (1200 sq. ft is tiny for Florida, the way they built them pre-1970) with poor insulation and ancient appliances.

My Florida home is over 2200 sq. ft, with all appliances less than 5 years old, great insulation, my A/C on 70F all day and night, 3 people living in the home, and my electric bill is the same or less than yours.

Re: Holy Crap! Massachusetts Electricity Rate Increase starting November - 64%
Maybe later this autumn we can start a "saving energy" thread for general purposes this winter. Here's a tip for keeping warm at night.

Before central heating, people used to heat their beds with thin iron boxes filled with embers. They'd place their iron warmers in the bed to warm it before going to sleep.

We can achieve the same thing with hot water bottles. Fill hot water bottles with the hottest water you have and stash them in your bed before going to sleep. On the coldest night two or three water bottles will easily keep you warm once you get into bed. It's best to have the water bottles covered with some kind of cloth or yarn wrap, to keep heat in through the night and also to protect your feet from the very hot surface of the bottles.
