If Your Electricity Comes From Progress Energy- Get Ready:

We recieve our energy from Progress Energy here in Orlando,FLa. That is true for many other residents in Orlando and elsewhere in Central Florida (and maybe further away).

Progress Energy requested and received approval for a rate hike increase to the average electric bill by as much as 25%.

They justified this rate hike by saying it will cover the costs of constructing a new nuclear power plant they say they need. I am not sure if it will cost as much as the disaster TVA is cleaning up. But who knows?
