BGE and Constellation Energy are still ripping us off, all the hype about a $16 savings on our bill notwithstanding. I know most of you reading today’s Sun article about BGE are laughing and crying at the same time over the outrageous insult that we are supposed to be happy about a $16 savings when they have been stealing millions from us under deregulation and continue to demand rate increases from the PSC.
BGE ratepayers still pay some of the highest electricity prices in the country and that is the fault of Martin O’Malley, Robert Ehrlich and the Maryland legislature.
I continue to stand on the side of working and poor people, those of us hit the hardest with BGE bills we cannot possibly pay. Those bills for hundreds of dollars every month have nothing to do with the real price of electricity and everything to do with what both Democrats and Republicans in this state have done to us – allowed a powerful corporation to steal from us so it can make ever more profits on our backs.
Some of the hard-working members of the MD Coalition for BGE Reregulation protested outside the office of the PSC this past Wednesday. Watch the video here and then you decide who’s really on your side.
