Electric Bill Increase

Mar 4, 2013

The Maryland Public Service Commission just allowed BGE, the gas and electric company, to start charging residential customers $6.00 more per month.

BGE recently became part of Exelon, a 19-billion-dollar-a-year corporation, paying its executives millions. When promoting this latest corporate takeover fiasco to people in Baltimore and Maryland, Exelon and BGE talked about lower costs. Now they want us to pay for maintenance they have stopped doing, thanks to laying off part of the work force!

They must think we are fools who are made of money.
