Sign the petition: Stop Progress Energy from raising our rates!

ratehikesDon’t let Progress Energy’s rate hikes harm those who are hurting financially and damage our struggling economy. They are asking for a profit level that is too high in the current economy. Rate hikes would dramatically drive up electricity bills for seniors, families, schools, towns and small businesses. Increasing rates will cost jobs and challenge the ability of the poor and those on fixed incomes to have a decent quality of life and stable retirement. Sign the petition below and tell the Public Utility Commission to stop raising our rates!

  1. Stop raising our rates and taking govt money (my taxes) and sticking it to us…

  2. It is improper for consumers to be charged in advance for coal or nuclear power plants that create morbidity and mortality if put into operation and take needed funds from rate-payers in the likelihood they would never be built.

  3. Conserve and not raise rates; low income folks hurting
