Hmm, how tempting. I got an offer in the mail from our power utility for their wonderful FIXED PAYMENT PLAN! I can now know EXACTLY what my power bill will be each month. I think they are counting on people not reading these things. I came across the following sentence in the brochure: "If your electric usage under the program remains consistent with your actual usage during the last one to two years, adjusting for the effects of unusual weather, you may pay up to 10 percent more than you would have paid under your standard rate schedule plus a $1 monthly administrative fee." The fee is undoubtedly to hire more people to figure out what to do with all the extra money they take in.
