Not if you are one with no heat. It would be no difference.
The major differences are that the rest of the house still has power.
Add to this that the neighbors with gas and oil furnaces/boilers are still heated.--
That's why I say those using electricity it would make no diference and is really punishing those customers while favoring those with gas or oil heat.
This was an ill advised action and those responsible should be held accountable.
About the same as the bridge lane closings in NJ.
There is no favoritism. Those customers accepted that program and the lower rates that go with it. Their coffeemakers and lights still worked.
And, this was not the same as the bridge closing in NJ. That was nothing but criminal malice and spite.
I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

That I agree with you. When you give control of your destiny to others be prepared to get burned. It's not worth it for the pittance in savings.
