l wonder how they calculate the number of customers... Pine & Allard apartments had no power & there are 200 units alone that were out.

I wonder how they justify charging customers on peak rates in off peak periods. Check your usage online. Click on the red on peak area for times. Apparently 7pm in not an off peak time to PUC. And 11:00pm is not mid peak! I could go on and on. Check your usage especially if you cannot justify your bills.

should have read 11:00am instead of pm

My mistake! PUC is completely blameless! Their customer/connect is a guide ONLY. For what? we will never know! Oh, and sometimes when the electricity is on route to your home it evaporates! That`s why our bills are so high even when we haven`t used much power.
Yeah, so if any of you believe this mumble jumble, contact me, I have some trash...I mean some really cool stuff I`d like to sell you! Yeah, yeah it`s good, clean and in good repair. No it doesn`t smell bad at all! Trust me!

Its just a joke now

jeffallen... there would be just one feed going into an apartment building. Even if each unit was billed individually, when counting customer, if the power is 'on' going into the building, then they are all 'on'.

Yup! PUC is a joke!
