Yea, I saw a few articles talking about how electric rates would skyrocket for all of Texas this year. I just find it criminal that everyone can just triple the cost from year over year.

Specifically Houston, but I've coworkers who live outside the city limits and it's the same story with them.

I haven't noticed my rates going up that much? But has gone up over the years thanks to shutting down coal plants.
