NLR's double standard

Posted By on Thu, Nov 30, 2006 at 8:13 AM

We've mentioned Argenta News before, a blog that is, quite seriously, just what it says. Recently, it's been analyzing the proposed NLR electric rate increase. You've read that it's 38 percent for residential customers. The blog notes that it's only 20 percent for businesses. What's the deal with that? And don't say it's because businesses are also facing some privilege license increases (if the NLR Chamber can be overcome). Argenta News notes that those increases are paltry.

He offers an interesting idea to cushion the rate rise for poor folks, a break on rates for the smallest users.
