Electric Bills Out of Control in Fort Collins! Did Yours Go Way Up Too? [POLL]

Man appalled by electric bill

My wife and I  live in Fort Collins and our electric bill has more than doubled in one month.  It is absolutely insane. We are surely not the only ones that this happened to.  Did your electric bill shock you as much as ours shocked us?  Please take our poll!

According to an article in the Fort Collins Coloradoan here is why the bills are going up:

First, the city as a whole is paying more for electricity from its provider, Platte River Power Authority. That means the base rate for everyone went up.

At the same time, Fort Collins officials created a new “tiered” system that forces heavy residential power consumers to pay significantly more than light users. That sliding scale went into effect in February.

City electric utility workers predicted those price increases would raise the average bill by 6 percent over the course of the year, with a spike of almost 17 percent for the summer months.

You might want to sit down to read this: Our electric bill went from $104 to $220 in one month. I am not a happy camper. What are you paying? Feel free to share in the comment section below.
