Xcel Energy Complaint - Xcel Energy And There Made Up Commodity Fees And Extras They Charge!
AURORA, COLORADO -- Here is my review of Xcel Energy. My total cost on the bill I received is 152.77. My electric usage was 35.35. My gas was 37.52. That comes out to about 74.00. Now here comes the necessary???... EXTRA fees... that HAVE to be ADDED in. GRSA:Which charges The facility usage charge plus demand charge... 4.49... elec. commodity charge: This bogus charge RECOVERS... the cost of fuel and purchased energy used to supply electricity service to us...? (GREAT WORDING FOR THE TERM BEING CHARGED TWICE FOR THE SAME SERVICE...) Demand charge:This charge recovers...... the fixed costs associated with the system capacity necessary to produce and deliver power to the consumers (LUCKY US) THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE ELEC. COMM. ADJ. ALL OVER AGAIN.. (IT IS!)Purchase cap cost adj.:12.51... All rate schedules are SUBJECTED..... (FORCED) TO ABIDE BY THIS. The PCCA RECOVERS... (SAME WORD SAID IN THE SAME WAY AS ABOVE) COST to purchase electric generation capacity from other suppliers...? and is subject to annual costs.... These are just some of the bogus charges we are being charged for electricity!!!! ALL THE ABOVE RULES ARE THE SAME THING!!!!!!!!!!! READ THEM!!!! We are all so lucky in Colorado and other states I'm sure to be charged almost 3 times what we are using...... What a BRILLIANT idea by this wonderful... company.... Now the gas breakdown:usage charge:8.33.
Again this charge RECOVERS!!!!!! (HERE IS THAT WORD AGAIN....) XCEL ENERGIES COST TO PROVIDE SERVICE.... TO US...? (GETTING DIZZY YET OR ANGRY?)The pipeline pipes it in for us for one cost on my bill for 7.17 and THEN... another cost of 1.28 more. (I GUESS THE PIPE WAS SHORT AND THEY EXTENDED IT....) Well last but not least: SERVICE AND FACILITY...9.34 FOR THE FIRST ONE 1.56 FOR THE SECOND ONE.... (I see these trucks parked usually at a park somewhere in the shade resting.. (I GUESS 11.00 IS NOT ENOUGH TO DO ANYTHING ELSE...) Every single charge is DOUBLED UP ON OUR BILL!!!!
All these phony charges are for the same thing! Hopefully everyone can see past this someday and take some action!!!!!!!! It would be nice to pay for services rendered just 1 time instead of 3 or more!
