ANOTHER Electric Rate Hike

You'll love this.

In a 2-to-1 vote, the state Public Service Commission approved a settlement aimed at ending lawsuits challenging permits for the $2.3 billion coal plant project under construction in Oak Creek.

...Commissioners Eric Callisto and Lauren Azar supported an alternative proposed by Sierra Club and Clean Wisconsin that reduces the total cost of the settlement by $7 million, to $98 million from $105 million.

Under the change, the price increase that will hit We Energies electric customers in January will be raised another $2 million.

So WE must pay $98 million to pay for Big Green projects in Lake Michigan, and YOU will pay for them with another rate increase.

Love and kisses from the fishies!!

Perhaps we could round up millions of gray squirrels and put them all on electric treadmills to generate electricity.
