Several weeks ago Beacon Journal writer Betty Lin-Fisher wrote a story about customers who are buying electricity directly from FirstEnergy Corporation on how they will see their rates pretty much double starting in June, unless they choose a separate provider or are in a government bulk-buying group.

Part of our community has NOPEC, a government buying group. Some Peninsula residents received letters stating they will be part of NOPEC unless they opt out.

The two articles Betty wrote are available on the Beacon website. She also has comparison information for gas and electric.
