Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO)

Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO): Tell AEP "NO" to passing on repair costs through yet another rate hike.

AEP made $1.9 BILLION dollars in profits last year. Paying for the repairs won't hurt their bottom line, and if they were updating infrastructure the way they should, a lot of the damage could have been avoided. Customers are already burdened with extremely high electric bills and with the economy in its current state, customers can't afford to pay for repairs that are AEP's responsibility.

    2. A combined effort against AEP

      Nicole Stiles
      Petition organiser

      Hey folks,

      Thanks for signing my petition to stop AEP from passing on their costs to us, the customer. It has been brought to my attention that my petition is a "repeat" of another petition made previously. I've spoken to the creator of that petition, and we've agreed to join forces! So, PLEASE follow the link provided and add your name to that signature. It's the same message, and the other petition already has more supporters; adding the 60+ supporters from this petition will just strengthen our efforts. Your support is appreciated, and this petition will disappear and be deleted on Sunday evening. That's also when Change.org will send out a mass email to all Ohio residents about the petition I'm asking you to sign.

      Again, your support is appreciated. Let's take a stand against yet ANOTHER AEP rate hike.

      I am signing this because AEP probably has some type of insurance that helps them with additional costs during this type of emergency, the public already pays for these services.

      This is ridiculous! Every time i see the power lines swinging and swaying in the strong winds, i wonder why the electrical lines aren't buried...?!! People crash their cars into the poles, the poles rot out (this happened to me), the wires are susceptible to damage in storms......ENOUGH ALREADY! Storms are frequent in this state, and often severe. Power outages are a common occurrence and something should be done to PREVENT this from happening in the future, instead of trying to get us to cover the cost of repairs!!

      I just don't think they should be able to make a profit, especially since I couldn't work for 7 days due to the outage.

      My electric bill skyrockets to over 200 a month in the winter. i have a small apt. the past two years they have made over 5 grand from me. I do not want to pay for a natural disaster. I like the idea that they should have insurance.

      Energy costs are high enough as it is.
