No power for 57,000 Rocky Mountain Power customers

Rocky Mountain does not give refunds when they fail to provide the sevice that customers pay for.  Utility bills are a perpetual debt that make utilities billion dollar companies. 

It is far less expensive to provide your own power and rest assured it will always be on unless you turn it off.  You save instantly even if you finance the upfront cost of equipment.  The utility wants you to pay them even after you die.  Most customers pay them for 60 or more years.  But when you finance your own system over a 15 year period, your monthly payments are less than your utility bill.  So you save immediately within the first 15 seconds and after only 15 years, you own it and save another 50 years of payments.
