Western Half of North Carolina are getting fighting mad that electric rates are going up…well, Welcome to the Club friends.

Funny I didn’t see a hell of a lot of chanting from them when our rates hit the roof over here in in eastern NC. Maybe that’s because there has always been the perception of “we know how to manage our stuff better with nuclear.” At least that what one NC Rep told me 2 years go.  

Now it looks like they will start to feel the sting of money literally going up in smoke. 

Not that I’m happy their rates are increasing, I’m certainly not. But, it certainly one thing to imagine someone’s pain…but quite another thing to realize and feel it.
