I have a question for WAPA, the PSC, or anyone in the government. My mother's neighbor just got an electric bill for $700. Eighty percent of it was for the LEAC. She has a full time job and is working part time on the weekends. My question is…What happens when my mother gets a bill like that? My mother is retired and on a fix income. Currently her bill is $200 a month. She rearly has the lights on since she goes to bed at 8pm; the hot water heater is on a timer, and the fridge is plugged in. Just that and it is $200. I have heard people saying they are paying more.
What will happen when she and others just can't pay? WAPA will be cutting thier power, and then less funding coming in.
