Avista Utilities monopoly

This petition had 312 supporters

Extreme rate hikes to the public utilities customers in Spokane County has gotten completely out of hand. Thousands of people are being charged double (or more) of what their average bill should actually be, and Avista is the only company offering electricity in Spokane so there is no choice but to pay or be shut off. That should be considered a MONOPOLY. There are nearly 8,000 homeless men, women & children in Spokane proper and some of these people literally lost their homes by going in debt in the process of trying to pay Avista. This has been an ongoing problem for a few years and Avista now boasts of a 10 million dollar profit last year. The public is being forced to pay these outrageous rate hikes every Fall, meanwhile the CEO of Avista makes over 3 million annually. Please sign the petition and share if you agree that this needs to stop NOW!
