Higher Electricity Bills in our Future?

Are you the type that has to make sure that all lights are turned off in every room all the time? I think I got this ‘tick’ from my dad. We’ve been staying with him this summer and it brings back memories as he barks at us to turn off lights.

How about this headline – Americans Face Jump In Electricity Bills Due To Proposed EPA Regulations.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed sweeping regulations that would require states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity sector by an average of 30 percent nationally. This costly plan is another step in the administration’s policies designed to eliminate low cost and reliable electricity and replace it with expensive and less reliable sources. The impact of this regulation will be felt by all Americans.

There is nothing worse then the feeling that you can’t pay your electricty bill. Hubby and I were in the poor house after we were first married and he was still in school. We were always behind in our bills and did everything we could to stay afloat. Winter was SO hard I remember being in tears after checking out my heating and electricity bills. I just can’t imagine what will happen to families when prices climb.
