Energy costs for electric customers are going up by as much as 50% across Pennsylvania next week, the latest manifestation of across-the-board energy price increases impacting gasoline, heating oil, propane, and natural gas. Eight Pennsylvania electric utilities are set to increase their energy prices on Dec. 1, reflecting the higher cost to produce electricity. Peco Energy, which serves Philadelphia and its suburbs, will boost its energy charge by 6.4% on Dec. 1, from 6.6 cents per kilowatt hour to about 7 cents per kWh. Energy charges account for about half of a residential bill.


Just Wow! Let's Go Brandon! Tell us how this helps the poor and middle class, exactly.

Right #1. Biden just told us to buy an electric vehicle to save money. "Energy prices must necessarily skyrocket." Obama

The electric power rate increase of 0.4 per kWh is 5.1%, quite a stretch from 50 percent. 7 cents per kWh is a bargain if the number is accurate.

What a cluster f__ . This article is specific to NJ and PA, I imagine IL is worse. I haven't been getting the calls for switching electric suppliers recently so I imagine I am locked in to some ridiculous rate--FJB.

It looks like 2021 is shaping up to be a crappy year. Energy costs are going to skyrocket across the country in the next few weeks and food prices are set to increase as well. The democrats have no plan except to increase spending. Biden is incapable of anything and Harris is worse. You are going to see and hear complete outrage across the country and things could become very unstable and violent. That is just on the domestic side. On the international side, the winds of war are beginning to pick up speed and would serve as a great distraction while at the same time justifying rationing. We are in for a dark winter!

I saw that, #4. If 8 power companies raise rates by 6% each, and you add all them together, maybe that's where you get up to about 50%. Let's Go Media.

I've used PA power switch for years, and have saved significantly over PECO...until now. I received my renewal notice from AEP due to take place on 12/2 and they are 2 cents per KWH over PECO for the renewal. Of course I tried calling AEP to discuss the situation and they are "closed for the Holidays". Bottom line, if you live in a state that allows competition by suppliers, by all means do some shopping around. Let's go Brandon.

#5...Illinois Power comes through these first...The Dakota access and Keystone WILL effect you, likely the Enbridge lines 3 &5 as well.. Dems in Philly fought hard against fracking, and fought hard against new pipelines. so much so that several years ago I helped build a huge new gas power plant in NW Ohio, the Nations Cleanest/most efficient Gas plant. The gas comes from western Penn. Marcellus fracked fields, but the power generated goes right back that way, through Penn. to replace shut down coal plants in Conn./Maryland/and delaware, sold through the PJM grid. Stage 2 is even larger and being built right next door. PJM RKO also ships electricity to parts of illinois, though most of that state is hooked to the Midwest ISO grid.

If Green new deal policies are not immediatly curtailed we are going to have shortages of electricity that will be far more devistating than high prices. Last year's electricity shortages in Texas are a preview of what is coming.

Democrats are going to vote Republican next Election. They had no idea what Biden would do to our country and TO THEM! I have family members who are Rabid Democrats. Can't tell tell them anything. They are the SHOW and Tell Crowd. So now, it's SHOW time. Show them their latest Electric and Heating Bills. SHOW them what it is costing them to fill up their cars and Trucks with Gas. SHOW them how much their Groceries have gone up. Now the grumbling starts. By 2024 they will vote for anyone BUT a Democrat for President. They can't afford another year like this one. That's how they learn, by SHOWING them what they did when they voted for Biden! I am snickering behind their backs!

The Central Planners are offended by middle class folks living a comfortable, pleasant, warm-in-winter, cool-in-summer, drive wherever you want to, lifestyle. The surest way to get rid of all that "waste" on the middle class is to price all energy so high that we are reduced to poorly heated and poorly cooled smaller homes, smaller cars, or short range EVs. And no fancy food like, for example. a steak......for the middle classes. This is no accident. This is their plan.

President Biden on Tuesday addressed the nation on what his handlers billed as “Remarks on Ending the War in Afghanistan.” Biden, who was careful to read the words someone else wrote for him and uploaded to the teleprompter, celebrated the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan as a huge success, touting the number of Americans airlifted out of the country and claiming that only a handful remain. His tone was almost jubilant as he defended the decisions of his administration while claiming that everyone from the military brass to the State Department was in full agreement about the botched withdrawal.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost sued the Biden administration Wednesday, saying the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package signed last week forces states to choose between receiving funding and lowering taxes. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, seeks a preliminary injunction against part of the American Rescue Plan Act. Yost said Congress exceeded its authority when it added the so-called tax mandate to the stimulus plan "at the last minute." Advertisement "The federal government should be encouraging states to innovate and grow business, not holding vital relief funding hostage to its preferred pro-tax policies," Yost said.

Pennsylvanians' holiday cheer will have to be served at home for the rest of the month. Gov. Tom Wolf on Thursday announced a series of restrictions to slow the spread of COVID-19 across the commonwealth, including shutting down indoor dining and on-site alcohol consumption. "This virus continues to rage in Pennsylvania and over the past several weeks, it's become clear that we need to take further mitigation actions to protect Pennsylvanians and stop the spread of COVID-19," Wolf said. "We all hoped to not come to this." Restrictions will go in place Saturday at 12:01 a.m. and be lifted at 8 a.m. on Jan. 4.

Democrats have long wanted the government to parent or co-parent your children, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that President Joe Biden said the quiet part out loud Monday night. Is the administration upset that you might be spending too much time with your family? The statement is also rather vague. The “nearly 2 million” number, I assume, represents the 1.8 million-woman reduction in our labor force during the COVID-19 pandemic. But it’s untrue to claim this loss is only due to women leaving work to care for a family member. There are myriad reasons why the pandemic and government-induced shutdowns could have diminished the female workforce.

I reported earlier today on the announcement about the new COVID variant out of South Africa that immediately had some freaking out because it was supposedly “heavily mutated” and that the spike protein was “dramatically different.” That raised questions about whether immunity and the vaccines would be protective against it. There were also suggestions that it was “highly contagious among young people.” So, it seemed obvious they were gearing up to go crazy over this again. Then we reported on Dr. Anthony Fauci claiming they needed more time and information to decide on whether they needed to be talking about travel bans, that they wouldn’t be implementing a travel ban yet.

In early August Gideon Schreiber and a team of virologists at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel began playing around with the spike protein of the Sars-CoV-2 virus–the protein that allows the virus to enter our cells–to see if they could predict future mutations that could yield dangerous new variants of Covid-19. At the time, Schreiber noted with concern that there were a variety of ways in which the spike protein could evolve. If all of these mutations occurred at once, it could yield a variant that was both extremely transmissible and potentially capable of evading some of the body’s immune defences

And then Darrell Brooks, a black racist, career criminal, and convicted sex offender with two open felony cases, intentionally drove into the Waukesha Christmas Parade, leaving bloody children strewn like crumpled flowers. Baby strollers and battered wheelchairs lay on the street in the aftermath of this racist rampage, while the media tries to cover up his black racist agendas. If a white racist had slammed his car into a black parade, there would be little doubt and less question about his motives.
