IS IT TRUE that people routinely plan trips to Henderson because gas is always about 10 cents per gallon cheaper than it is in Evansville?....that doing that for an average fill up saves about $1.50?...that if everyone had electric cars and the cost to charge the batteries was $100 in Indiana that the difference in the electrical rates between Evansville and Henderson would make that charge cost $37 in Henderson?....that Vectren's excessive rates will make the introduction of BEV's (Battery Electric Vehicles) and other Green Initiatives in Vectren's service area in Indiana absolutely cost prohibitive?...that Green jobs are seen as the most desirable jobs to attract going forward?...that Evansville and SW Indiana are playing this "Green Jobs" game with their hands tied behind their backs and an albatross around their necks?...that Vectren's rate structure when compared to Henderson is quite likely to keep Evansville and SW Indiana from participating in any Green Initiative led recovery?

IS IT TRUE that in the coming cold months if your electric bill in Evansville is $300 that across the money saving bridge the same bill would only be $104.24?...that if Vectren has its way with the State of Indiana and the rate increase is approved your $300 electric bill will increase to $334.59 yet in Henderson it will still cost $104.24?....that this difference in price would not even be possible in a free market?...that this is just a taste of what a legislated monopoly can cost?

Evansville’s High Power Costs Rank with Chicago, Washington D. C., Boston, Phoenix, and Coastal...

The City County Observer has located a very well written analysis of the economic benefits of deregulation and competition in selling electric power. Vectren's current rate of 12.49 cents for KWh and its proposed increase to 13.93 cents per KWh place our prices up there with the most expensive rates in the entire country. In the article on the effects of deregulation Houston was highlighted as an exemplary city for delivering cost effective power to its residential customers. Greater Houston has 15 different providers and power plans that start at 7.5 cents per KWh with a rewards program for loyalty and use.
