In the middle of a horrible, lengthy recession (at times seemingly teetering on the verge of a depression), Duquesne Light wants to raise electricity rates. They are proposing the following increases:
Monthly bill for an average commercial customer: 6.14%
Monthly bill for an average industrial customer: 2.98%
And, of course, the average residential customer gets screwed on the monthly bill: 9.38%
This is how America does business.
