Yes When 52 other smaller compainies charge up to 800% less Than National Grid Does for the same
Goods and services.

Solvay Electric only charges 3.1 cents a killowatthour
for Electricity and Just $2.00 to send you a bill.

National grid Charges $20.00 to send you a bill.
13 cents per killowatt hours.
Plus 8 cents for delivery charges.

Solvay only has 5,300 customers

National Grid has 3,500,000 customers.

If they are that inefficent, We need someone else to supply our Electricity in NYS.

There are 52 Electric Compaines in NYS with rates
less than National Grid.
and none of these smaller compaines more efficent Companies
have even 10% of the customer base of National Grid.

Larger is supposed to be more efficent.

It seems in the case of National Grid Larger just means higher bills.

I think this is why the city of Syracuse Common Council brought up the idea of producing their own power. I think Bill Simmons thought of that, if I'm not mistaken. I know the village of Philadelphia near Fort Drum has their own power similar to what Solvay has. There are others. Fairport is another that comes to mind.

Also, I think it depends on what you live in. When I lived in an apartment complex, the bill was hardly over $70. So, other factors have to be considered as well.

many companies here have found that the utilities were unreasonable-- court actions were required to build their own power plant.

Solvay Electric has a sweetheart deal on power from the dams in the Niagara Falls area, which dramatically cuts their costs if memory serves.

That's probably true, as the Buffalo area exports a lot of power to other parts of the state.

I think there is a power generator in Solvay as well. I'm not sure what they use though.

Solvay Electric Has no generators buy all it's power from the GRID, You know the northeast Grid, the one when a circuit breaker in Massachusetts trips the northeast goes in the dark for a few days.

So if Solvay can buy and sell and make a profit at 3 cents a killowatthour what is National Grid makeing Megoprofits.

I have called the FBI and ask for an investgation into why National Grids rates and fees are 800% higher than the other
Electric Companies in NYS State. 8% ok 10% ok 800% wow
let's all jump on that Gravey Train!
The CEO of National Grid This last year Got a 60% increase in his pay. Now he get only $4,000,000.00 a year to run National Grid.

Our President of the USA doesn't get any were near that much.

HMMMMMMMMMM must be nice to be friends with the member of the NYS PSC hu!

I want National Grid to be the Wal Mart of Electric Delivery in NYS. I want our PSC to make sure that happens for all of us.

Call your elected officals I have, They need to hear from us before Election day and we are all broke and National Grid has all our money and there are no Jobs Left, Because National Grid has made it is so unprofitable up here in NYS that all the jobs have moved south.

Really 800% higher Rates and fees for electricity and gas in the National Grid service area. And you wondered why you can't find a job.
Merry Christmas from National Grid and their Friends on the PSC.

Oh Yea National Grid will be asking for even Higher Rates and fees This year.

When is Enough, enough

When the jobs are all gone and we are all on welfaire.

I don't want welfaire I just want Fair!
