Glad I'm moving into an all-electric apartment in a few weeks. I can just limit my complaining to Georgia Power.

Update all your appliances.

Make sure you can handle the expenses for heating and cooling an All electric space though. Electric per kilowatt is much more expensive than gas per therm.


Personally I could never do without gas cooking, and I'm thankful with the break in Utility bills during the winter and shoulder seasons.

I mean I could hate on passthrough charges, but what's the point? AGL owns the pipes, they will get their cut, regardless of what gas provider you choose. That is by law.

Georgia Power assesses all sorts of tariffs and there may be franchise fees (if they are running along a Muni's line). Your cable providers charges franchise fees (they general always have to rent lines from the powerline owner).

Matter of fact, I'm willing to bet that the Power tariffs amount to about half the electric bill too.

I'm saying all of this to say, if you are trying to bypass a utility because you don't want to pay their charges, then you may be better off just going off-grid, cuz that ain't never gonna happen.
