Hey, elected clowns! Thanks for passing a law forcing Duke Energy customers to pay up to $1.5 billion in higher rates for a long proposed nuclear power plant in Levy County that will not be built.
More funny business is going down in Florida! Apparently, for the last several years, Duke Energy customers have paid up to $1.5 billion in extra charges to help fund the upcoming nuclear energy plant…however, just recently, Duke scrapped the project.
And no, Florida customers, you’re not getting any of that money back.
This was all made possible by your great Florida legislators!
Too bad we can’t shut down Florida legislators just as easily. Especially those lawmakers who conjured up the 2006 law letting power companies charge advance fees to rate payers for high-priced and, yes, even ill-considered nuclear power projects.
Sounds a lot like fraud to us. Honestly, this is complete anti-capitalism and is only another example of a monopoly-holding energy organization taking advantage of their customers.
Gouging Floridians with advance fees throughout one of the worst recessions in modern history? What leadership.
