Lisa Madigan bitch slaps People’s Energy

I love when any horrendously overpriced, monopolistic public utility finds themselves in hot water. But if there are 2 that I would really like to see go down, it is Comcast and People’s Energy. My heating bill for my small 900 square foot apartment is usually about $160 in the dead of winter. And that is a load of crap. From The Trib:

Georges and Madigan indicated they could seek hundreds of millions of dollars in penalties, fines and forfeited profits.

The lawsuits claim the alleged scheme went on from 1999 to 2002, a period during which residential gas bills rose significantly.

The article also says that we shouldn’t hold our breath for a giant settlement check as customers. But even if they get inconvenienced for a while, I am OK with that. Anything that is a pain in the ass to them will do fine.
