AEP and FirstEnergy have been busy trying to undercut each other and lock in a bunch of new customers. The Ohio Consumers' Counsel is against AEP's plan to lock in a bunch of customers and overcharge them.
FirstEnergy is trying to do away with a state-ordered all-electric discount. Oh, and by the way, they want to steal AEP's customers by offering them lower rates.
Now Duke Energy jumps in and wants to undercut FirstEnergy's "savings."
Isn't "competition" great, fellas?
Deregulation = not really saving the consumer any money, but the show is pretty entertaining to watch!
