  •  Baloney on several counts. I have seen first hand (5+ / 0-)

    the after effects of a hurricane.  The utility, FPL, was utterly clueless.  The repairs trucks drove around lost and unable to figure out where problems were.  Several weeks without power, I called FPL to check on the status of the outage and the customer service person assured me that my power was back on.  I was pretty certain it wasn't.  It was a joke.  And, no, everything shouldn't be a mess after a hurricane if equipment is in good order.

    Your quaint explanation of how rates are set is amusing.  Maybe you aren't from Florida and don't understand the culture of corruption.  FPL has handpicked the people sitting on the Public Service Commission.  It should perhaps be renamed the Utility Service Commission.  It truly serves the utilities and not the public.

      take a look.  Those rates are nowhere near monopoly rates.

      Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescindibles.
