Blue Ridge Mountain Electric is changing its pricing structure.
Do you know the details?
It's called "revenue neutral" because it's not going to increase their money, but it may very well increase your bill!
BRMEMC is increasing its customer charge by about $1.54 per month while decreasing the electric charge slightly. The average member who uses about 980 kWh a month will see no change in their bill.
So what is the problem?
The problem is that about 23,000 members who use less than 980 kWh a month will see their bills go up! Anyone using more electric will pay less!
Almost 23,000 low energy members will subsidize
large energy consumers and businesses.
But that's not all. Many co-op members are talking about concerns they have with BRMEMC's transparency, difficulties in attending board meetings, problems with their bills as well as other issues.
Whatever your concerns are, come join us.

Families Against Inequitable Rates.
We are a coalition of BRMEMC co-op members .
We believe that BRMEMC's pricing structure is discriminatory and creates disparate treatment of members in the same class. BRMEMC is pitting its residential members against each other.
Commercial customers are not affected at all.
BRMEMC has to be transparent and responsive to its members.
We believe that BRMEMC has not been fair!
