I figured out why Solvay Electric is so cheap.

The Line men for Solvay work for free.
The Trucks used to service the Lighting Bolts were free too.
The telephone Poles used in Solvay Grew there.
The Electricity is delivered VIA lighting Bolts.
The people that lick the Stamps don't Spit.
Solvay Electric Has no Insurance.
The NYS PSC hasn't got there yet!
No one in Solvay ever fell behind on paying there bills.

The Guy the Runs Solvay Electric Doesn't get paid $4,000,000.00
a year!
How do you thing they do it?

I think National Grid should take a leason from Solvay Electric
on efficent Electric service and fair priceing.

And Our PSC better get out of Bed with National Grid,
I'm sure there are rooms in the Bernie Motel Down South
if things don't get straighten OUT!

Who can Afford to open a Business in the National Grid service Area.

The PSC has unregulated the Delivery fees they Charge.

That right the Delivery Fees are able to be increase with out so much as a notice to the PSC Guess they just don't have time to bother with such things these day.

Wonder why people's Delivers Fees are higher than the Usage
part of your bill.

Looks like National Grid got quite a sweetheart Deal guaranteed income. Not profit on sales but Income.
You are conservative on your usage and they just raise the rates for deliver fess so the cash keeps flowing their way.

Not sure it's supposed to work that way but I've heard it does.

Don't call just keep paying, National Grid is counting and counting on it.

Or we can become the biggest pain in the you know where these
crooks have ever seen.

I am one, We are many. Together we can make a difference for the good of us all.

Oh just For your Information over 50% of National Grid's Customers are in the arrears and in danger of disconnect.

Gee could the 800% gap between fair and reasonable have anything to do with it.

So if you fall behind don't get embarrassed your in good company.

I'm sure the 1,500,000 accounts placed in collection each month
are because they are all just dead beats, low life, unemployed,
Welfare receivers, That just never paid a bill any way.
The 800% profits have nothing to do with it.

and $5.00 a gallon Gas made or economy prrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Right into a depression.

How long does it take you to make the money for your National Grid bill,
Ok How long will it take you to make a phone Call to reduce your
National Greed Bill.

It's up to you.

See they are counting on you sleeping in, or looking for a job,
or begging for food. That way you won't have time to call.

Seems like it worked for the past 10 years.

Just look at your next National Grid Bill.
Merry Christmas from National Grid and the Boys at the NYS PSC
Doing a great job for all of us.

Try calling your assemblyman or Senator or the FBI I have.

I am one, 1,500,000 is a lot.

That is at least mostly blatantly false. The PSC approved the last increase in delivery fees. The actual problem which was causing higher fees than usage were the minimum service charges, which is an entirely different matter - and also, once approved by the PSC.

There are plenty of problems with the way things are currently regulated - but they are quite assuredly still regulated.

How About a Class action suite for all the rate payer that have been Double Billed.

You Know $20.00 a month for line maintance, and 8 cents a killowatthour for delivery
when Solvay charges $2.00 to be a customer and Zero cents for Delivery.
Oh that's right Solvay delivers VIA Lighting Bolts.

National Grid Uses Wires!


Well 800% more for such a nice Company like National Grid
Just look at all the services they provide.

National Grids Killowatts do more work than Solvay's
National Grids Killowatts are Cleaner.
National Grid most not be connected to the National Grid.

Oh well National Grid is not done they want more, Lots more.
You think National Grid CEO isn't going to want a 60% raise
Next year?

Hang on to your wallet!

Hope our citys and town never apply National Grid Business Plan.
If they do a Glass of water will be $10. Bucks!
$5.00 a month for spit on the stamp
$1.00 to turn on the tap ever time you get thirsty.
9 cents a drop to delivey the water.
Oh let's not forget the old rate of flow charge.
and then an annual increase on the delivery charge.

Keep up the Good work National Grid.
WE really do love you!

Demand Charges What a Faerie Tale.

Where does most of our Electricity come from.

Nuke Plants.
Hydro Plants
Wind Plants
Gas Fired Plants
Oil Fired Plants
Wind Plants

So in the over all running of things you really think
some one at National Grid is running the throttle on
a gas fired or Oil fire Generator so when The mill starts up
they step on the old peddle.

Didn't work that way on any of the Navy ships I served as an electrician. It was all automatic.

The Cranes were the largest users of power and the system worked fine.

We never had to borrow power from another ship in the fleet to use our cranes.

Oh and we never sent the Captain a demand bill when the cranes were needed either.

The point is the 13 cents a kilowatt more than pays for what ever National Grid has to do to get
power to you.
The equipment and systems have been paid for for years.

It's the $4,000,000.00 annual salaries they need to generate money for.

The Governor of NY only get $179,000.00 a year

The CEO of National Grid collects that amount ever 3 weeks.
And you wonder why National Grids Rates are 800% more Than Solvay Electric and the other 52 electric companies that care more about their customers than their own pockets.

When energy is reasonably priced we all prosper Not just the guys selling us that Power.

National Grid Made million at 10 cents a kilowatt hour and there were jobs now with all their fees and rate hikes it's over 28 cents and there are no jobs new or old it seems they have chased them all out of town.

The less they sell the more they sell it for what a deal. shore has attracted investment in up state New York.

Oh well I'm retiring any way! Won't kneed a job any more.

How does Solvay Electric do IT?
How does Wal Mart Do IT?
Why Can't National Grid Do IT?
They Just don't Get It! The only thing they get is large amount of our money for small amounts of power!

I've got it! Pick up the USS John F Kennedy at fire sale prices, sail it to the Inner Harbor of Syracuse, and run the city off the ship while adding a new tourist attraction!! Who needs Destiny when you have an aircraft carrier?

There's even more - how about closing Hancock Airport now that airplanes can land closer to downtown on the Kennedy? Cuts down on urban sprawl too. Re-start OnTrack as an urban connector over to the regional transportation center.

(Now, for the naysayers who might point out that a slightly used aircraft carrier won't fit through the NYS Barge Canal...)

Default We are getting Organized We need You too

Just got off the phone with National Greed Customer service. The first guy I spoke to was at least honest when I asked him what the "Delivery Charges" were all about and said he didn't know. Next person was quite entertaining. Did you know that the "Delivery Adjustment" charge was to protect you from price fluctuations? Really, protect WHO?? Sounds a lot like pre-pay to me. My usage was $88.88 and the Delivery Charge was $145.73. Of this, $54.89 was my protection money and $66.80 was just plain Delivery. Oh, by the way, it slipped out that You are not paying 3 or 4 cents per Kilowatt hour, but the actual charge is around 12 cents.

So please sent to as many people as you can VIA a chain E-mail.

and sign the protes too

National Greed has Over 3,500,000 customer I'd like at least a 1,000,000 signers.

We need to get the word around.
