Telling it like it is with Duke Energy

Finally, some brave soul has finally spoken up about what a rip-off Duke Energy is. Too bad she couldn’t let the newspaper use her name, but all of us realize her bill would be higher next month. They have you by the short hairs.

Normally, I sign all letters to Tribune-Star, but I may think twice about this one. Am I the only one in Terre Haute who realizes Duke Energy is giving us the shaft?

For God’s sake people, write to the paper. They don’t have a bias, and if the bill is way too much, go to energy assistance at 705 S. Fifth St. They can help you a little bit.

That’s the trouble with Terre Haute. They won’t complain to the right people.

Another thing, where in Terre Haute is the office for Duke Energy? All you’re given is an out-of-town phone number.

My guess is they are afraid to face us. I wish all of you people would wake up.
