Quote: It's been highlighted well before the storm that they pay the highest price per kWh in the state, and have the worst service / most outages. The city lost power about 18 hours before the storm hit, and restoration didn't begin for almost a week. Suffice it to say, some things are better left in the hands of large, financially independent corporations.
I should point out the other side. While JEA in Jacksonville has had some issues in power restoration, they are able to offer rates below all of the major companies. They finally requested their first rate increase in 13 years last month. It is possible for a municipality to do utilities right. The big companies do have an advantage after major hurricanes. However, how many times does that really come into play?
