I've been hearing that recent legislation is expected to increase people's electric bills by an average of $200 per month.
Does anyone know when this will happen? Will it happen all at once? Or be sneakily implemented over the course of a few years?

I just received a letter from my electric co-op that says if legislation is passed, our electric bill will go up by "$700-$2200 annually". That would be a minimum of $58 a month, which would be substantial, since my electric bills seldom go over $100 a month.

tnmomofive, I know! I've already cut everything I can. We live in a passive solar house, have compact fluorescents, Energy Star appliances, and I hang my laundry and use power strips to cut power to anything we aren't using. I feel flogged. How the heck am I going to squeeze another $58+ every month?
