Americans Face Jump In Electricity Bills Due To Proposed EPA Regulations

Though I am Canadian, most of the readers here on this site come from the United States. This information I am about to share is extremely important and directly affects you.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, known as the EPA, has proposed sweeping regulations that would require all the states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity sector. They say it has to be reduced by an average 30% nationally. This costly plan is another step in the administration's policies, designed to eliminate low cost and reliable energy, and replacing it with expensive and less reliable sources. 
The U.S. manufacturing market will become less competitive because of the higher electricity costs. Families will have less disposable income due to having to spend more on heating and lighting their homes. Seniors and people on fixed incomes will be forced to dig further into their incomes and monthly budgets on utilities. The EPA's plan is leading Americans into a very uncertain future, that's for sure.

My eyes are wide open. Generally, what happens in the U.S. ends up happening here in Canada too. Our costs are already outrageous for energy. I don't know how many more households in Canada could take a hit like that and pay more too. It is definitely food for thought.

I urge you to contact your local member of congress. This needs to be stopped.

  1. Yes, food for thought. We (in California) are making modifications in personal water usage due to the drought in our parts.

    1. I'm all for trying to decrease consumption, but to make people pay more than it's worth or than they have is an issue.

  2. And the hits keep coming. I don't know the answers, but when a country eliminates the middle class, who foots the bills? Thanks for sharing, Freda.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
