I live in Magoffin Co and Licking Valley RECC is our only company that we can get electricity from. During the power outage we were without electric for 4 days. I live up RT 7 at Gunlock almost at the county line and LV were in our area only 2 miles down the road the first day it was out and fixed everybodys but the peoples within the 2 mile range and ours was really simple to fix about a 30 minute job. As though that isn't enough right now my security light is out that I pay $8.38 a month for and has been out for a week and I have been calling everyday since and they just tell me and my husband the same thing. That they have someone on it. I have a security light for security. What ever happened to customer service were the customer came first. The LVRECC is a sorry bunch and hope eventually they get some competion.

I agree with here's your proofs post but what are people going to do about it??? I worry about the elderly that cannot get help to pay their electric bills..... I think that its crazy that we have to pay these rates but we need to complain to the governor or the attorney general...we have no other choice but to pay these rates, or move but most elderly people will not leave their homes or families so we all need to contact the attorney general on this. Maybe if enough people did we might have a choice. Everyone I have talked to says their bill doubled this month,,,just what will it be next month??? I doubt any cheaper. Contact your state rep. and complain to them. Maybe they can help.

You should contact the Public Service Commission it you have complaints. LVRCC is being audited right now because apparently it is losing (or can't account for) about 10% of the power it purchases to resell. I think the management actually hates its customers.

I don't understand how they can raise our bills this much! How do they expect a minimum wage person to pay these rates? Don't expect no help from the board of directors!

A few years ago some guys tried to run for the board of directors, and the board we have in place now screwed them out of the win. The people need to call and ask about the pay the board gets, You will be so mad.
I remember

I remember whe that happened. Yes the board of directors are getting very wealthy! There was a man named Earl May on the board and when he got finished guess who took his place? His son John May. I also believe that Ted Holbrook(board) and Darrell Cundiff ( board) are very closely related. Isn't this picture starting to look kinda funny. Well , it's time for something to be done and only we the people CAN DO SOMETHING about it if we stand together. You get enough people out in front of that eletric office and I guarntee you the news will be there. WE WANT ANSWERS !!

speaking of power outages---how many of you that survived the Feb 2009 storm/power outage has since February gotten another type of heat so if there is another major power outage you will stay warm??? Any electric company can only do so much when a storm hits. I know some of the electric men & they worked almost around the clock to get power back on. Anyone with total electric heat needs to get another source of heat such as kerosene, or wood to stay warm in emergency. Also a gas or charcoal grill is good to cook on outside. There are ways to cope & survive. However a lot of people don't want to take care of themselves. No one has survival skills anymore.

Darrell Cundiff and Ted Holbrook are not related.

I got my electric bill and the December bill is more than double what it was for November. I used less killowatts and my bill was more than double. Doesn't seem just right, somehow.

Is there anything we can do about these high bills?

I thought everyone's bill was supposed to go up about nine dollars, not a hundred or more dollars.

I think if everyone is concerned, as I am, then we should get together and sue Licking Valley. Letcher County is suing their electric company for raising the prices so high, so why can't we? The economy is hurting really bad and they want to raise prices. It doesn't make sense. Most people cannot afford to pay these prices. A lot of people are laid off, mostly because of coal companies not getting permits due to Obama, and don't have this kind of money. Stand up and fight for what you believe in. Research Letcher County suing their electric company online and see how they did it. I think it was Letcher anyhow. I will look it up too.
