Big guys get bigger, Little guys get happy customers


Duke Energy, a powerful company from North Carolina

is buying up power companies everywhere in many states and is becoming a monopoly.

Light bulbs screw into taxpayers light sockets.

Duke energy screws into taxpayers pocketbooks.

A little electric oxymoron?

Little power companies, like ours, gives back to their taxpaying customers.


SECO NEWS, November 2013,

SECO (Sumter Electric Cooperative)


get nearly $3 Million in return.

SECO.s Board has given back $28 Million

in the last 18 years, so what’s up with Dukes customers?

“At a co-op, the members/customers get to vote on who represents them on the Board of Trustees,

they get to vote on any changes to the co-op’s bylaws and they get to share in excess co-op margins.”


Duke energy customers and taxpayers everywhere are forced to pay this company millions of dollars for a Nuclear Power Plant that will never be put back on line, this is in addition to the millions already paid to try to save the plant, plus even more millions of dollars just in case this company decides to build another power plant?


They are not customer/members!

Read and weep?

Duke Kills Florida Nuclear Project, Keeps Customers’ Money

Someone or someone’s, somewhere is also getting to screw many taxpayers/members/customers pocketbooks?

Makes everyone wonder who and why, doesn’t it?
