Some Duke Energy customers said they got a big shock when they opened their most recent electric bill – a new charge that requires them to spend a specific amount of money with the utility company per month.
“Beginning in January, Duke Energy Florida instituted a minimum monthly bill of $30 that applies to most non-demand rates for commercial and industrial, and also applies to all residential rates,” said Duke Energy spokesperson Ana Gibbs. “Only a small portion of solar customers are impacted by a minimum bill. The larger portion is made up of a variety of different customers including seasonal customers, customers who have multiple properties, etc.”
One thought - home Solar production is getting large enough that power companies are looking to cash in. The little person never get's a break for long!
