Thats because the regulators gave them that money becuase they greased the wheels for it. Principles of free market if the rate was actualy set by the market and not the regulaters your cost would not have gone up! You should have looked for a new provider! Renewable energy did not cost you politics cost you! The same dirty fucking money that you are supporting are the ones that cost you! Not the renewable sector! In Ohio we pay extra for Davis Bessy because the politicians made us not the free market! Get the fucking politicians out of it and free market rules prevail! As a conservative or at least claiming to be you should get behind that!
