(Washington Post)   Virginia's Dominion Power had excess profits of $280 million during the last regulatory period, which it was required to return to customers in the form of rebates. But don't worry, state lawmakers re-wrote the law to let them keep it, instead   ( divider line

you think THIS is bad? the power and light company covering my house charges extra if you're not using enough power (such as trying to conserve energy, the way they taught us to in the '70s).

/Old. Sad. And poorer with each electric bill.

During the last hurricane I was out of power for 8 days. On day 3 a Dominion guy came by and fixed the main line in front of my house, but my service line was down. basically the connector had snapped off. No rewiring, no new line, just needed to reattach. The guy told me he literaly did not have 10 minutes to attach my house back even though he was right there on my pole (hehe) and left.

I know you gotta get the most customers you can up at once, and it is better to spend an hour getting 100 people online than 1 person, but are right there. I can hand you the farking service line and all you gotta do it snap that biatch back on.

Oh, and on day 5 I get a text "This is dominion. Your power has been restored, and your ticket closed". I had to argue with the farking lady. "My power hasn't been fixed" 'Well it says here that it has'. "I can promise you that it hasn't." 'Have you tried flipping the light switch to make sure it's just not off?' "I don't need to. I know I have no power" 'Well it hs been reported as fixed.' "Why the fark would I lie about this? I. Have. No. Power." 'Maybe it's your breaker box' "It isn't my breaker" 'How do you know? Are you an electrician?' "I know, because my farking service line has farking snapped is on the farking ground where it has farking been for the past 5 farking days and not farking attached to the farking grid like it farking should be! ...Fark." 'Oh....I'll see about getting someone back out there'

I don't know if it passed the legislature or not, but there was a bill this session in New Mexico that was also "good for the ratepayers" that allowed the utilities to significantly jack up residential power rates so they could marginally cut rates to 'big' employers (>50 employees) because jorbs.

In effect, lowering the bill of the local Wal-Mart and increasing the bills for the people who shop there.

But David Botkins, a Dominion spokesman, said that "customers are the winners with this bill" just  before he passed out from laughter.
