« PJS union schedules press event | Main | Union and Peoria take on Wall Street -- Can the PJS be saved? »

April 07, 2012


I don't understand the references to "green energy". No utility is supplying 100% "green"energy. I also love how everyone jumps on the bandwagon of how this deregulation is going to "save money". Part of the cost that Ameren Cilco passes on, is the cost of non-payment of utility bills. By law they can't shut someone's power off during the winter or during a heat wave so they have to eat the bad dept when a resident doesn't pay. These "new" companies don't have the deadbeat customers and they aren't going to pick up them either as they will decline to take on someone with bad credit. Someone is going to have to service the people that won't pay so eventually this bad dept will have to be picked up by someone or Ameren Cilco, if left with only non-payers will pull out of this market.

  • From the News Release
    PeoriaStory will tell the stories that likely won’t be told by the mainstream/corporate media. It will question local political candidates for their views on controversial topics. It will cover and profile off-beat movements and people. It will take stands on issues such as the Kellar trail. It will also serve as a forum for liberal and progressive events, and welcomes news releases from groups working for the public good. PeoriaStory will be a fresh, new voice for the Peoria area blogosphere, and offer a liberal and progressive perspective for our times.
