resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I am moving to Georgia in a week and research to see the electric company in the area I am moving to, and it is Greystone Power. They have asked for a deposit of over $390.00! That is outrageous! I have searched the Internet and the highest deposit I saw was a person who posted their deposit was $600.00! What in the world is going on in Georgia. A reasonable deposit up to $150.00 would be understandable. I also, found complaints of consumer's electric bill doubling after using less or the same amount of electricity, and, there are complaints of the power always going out. The consumers have no choice if they live in an area that Georgia Power does not service. I understand they look at your credit, but, electricity is the main utility anyone uses, and that is one of the first, if not the first, bill you pay after the mortgage. I have lived in Dallas, TX (were the electricity is deregulated) and Chicago, IL and both areas have good electricity rates and NO OUTRAGE DEPOSITS. I bet you there is some money going into a/some politicians pockets to allow Greystone Power to charge very high deposit fees and the CEO of the company is sitting back grinning in his or her mansion. I hope the electric bill will not be equal to mortgage.
