Well I received my new bill today dated 1/21/2016 and I see the customer charge went from $25.00 to $30.00per month. This charge is ridiculous. What is it for? No one seems to know. Just because we have no choice but to use them doesn't mean they should be able to take advantage of their customers. Even if you use no electricity at your place for the month you still have this fee to pay. The government or someone needs to step in and put a stop to this. It is plain stealing from their customers so they can line their pockets. I think every penny of this so called customer charge should be refunded to each customer from the time they started charging it. There's got to be something someone can do to stop this. It's hard enough for people to pay their bills yet alone pay for something that doesn't have any merit.

I have had WREC since 1995. The rates are lower than all other companies. I have blinks and some outages but not nearly as many as I had with Tampa electric. The end of the year dividends are fantastic. Operation roundup has helped people I know. You cannot get a job there unless someone retires. They are good to the employees and treat them with respect. Three cheers for Mr. Billy Brown.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
