11. Yeah, I understand how it works. Folks thought they'd save money

that way. Surprise! However, this unexpected spike was not in anyone's mind at all. Something will have to be done to correct the situation, or those companies who are brokering those "wholesale" pricing schemes are going to be going broke soon.

We pay monthly, directly to our utility company, which is regulated by the state of Minnesota. Nothing like this could happen with our billing. I understand that the people who signed up for the "wholesale" scheme did so to try to save money. They made a mistake, but were not warned that something like this disaster might occur. Unfortunately, probably the automatic charges were probably required when they signed up.

It's never a good idea to allow anyone to automatically withdraw funds that are not fixed in nature.
