According to ODP, this increase is necessary due to increases in forecasted coal and natural gas expenses.
But industry data shows that building renewable energy facilities is now cheaper than continuing to run existing coal plants, and energy efficiency is the cheapest method of providing Americans with electricity. Unfortunately, ODP only powers 1% of the electricity it produces from renewable resources, meaning they’re charging customers more money to continue to operate more expensive power plants.
Join us on May 23rd at 6pm and tell the ODP and the State Corporation Commission to invest in cheaper, cleaner resources in order to reduce costs for its customers.
