Dominion East Ohio billing under debate

Published: Mon, June 23, 2008 @ 4:01 p.m.

Changes to the distribution part of the Dominion East Ohio’s bills are being debated by state regulators.

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has proposed moving most distribution costs from a usage-based system to a flat fee. The Ohio Consumers’ Counsel, which represents residential utility customers in rate cases, filed an objection to the proposal today.

Dominion customers in Northeast Ohio now pay $5.70 a month to cover administrative costs, such as billing and meter reading. They also pay a distribution fee that covers the cost of delivering gas. It varies by usage.

The PUCO staff has recommended that the administrative fee and most of the distribution costs be wrapped into one flat fee of $17 a month, although there still would be a small variable fee for distribution.

A delivery fee, How do they deliver the gas ??? They turn a valve at aremote location and gas is automatically delivered to everyones house. For that I should pay a monthly fee ? It's not like someone opens a valve each time I turn on an appliance. This fee needs to go away, it is about as important as a bathroom attendent handing me a towel to dry my hands. Keep gouging the low income and middle class, when does the nickle and dime theft stop ??
Administration fee ?? No one reads my meter each bill is a guess.
