Letter: Electricity rates will only get worse

Published: Thursday, July 10, 2014 6:48 p.m. CST

To the editor,

The village of Lisle just notified us all of new electricity rates:

New rate: 7.31 cents per kilowatt hour

Old rate: 4.78 cents per kilowatt hour

A 53 percent increase in our rates!

Sadly, there isn't a thing you can do about it.

And, with our out-of-control EPA, and DC administration, costs will continue to spiral out of control with their shutdown of coal-fired power plants.
