Okay, I received my natural gas bill last night and was shocked. The bill had literally doubled. I looked and the delivery rate had almost doubled, being the main cause. I called the gas company and they said our corporation commission had authorized it. I said in the middle of winter, during a recession? The lady said they receive thousands of calls daily from ticked people. Should I look at moving most of my natural gas stuff to electric if possible? Main question is it sensible to spend some money buying solar panels to reduce my dependency on these companies and outrageous hikes? Lastly, I'm fortunate my wife and I make a good income. Our house was just built and is super energy efficent from appliances, to windows and the best insulation. However, some people, like single moms, living in non-energy efficient homes are going to be in big trouble once they receive their new bill.
