CASE 402 - Utility bills/companies

Utility companies, usually Gas, water and electricity, either buy or extract energy from the ground and then sell it to the people in forms of bills. Bills from utility companies are based on measured (metered) use of electricity, natural gas or other utilities at a residence or business. When an individual or business applies for service from the utility (opens an account), he (supposidly) signs an agreement (contract) to pay for his metered use of the utility, but if you were to ask them for the original contract, the company will either just ignor you or tell you something of irrelivance, but "its not their energy to be selling on to the people in the 1st place", it comes from the ground so it should be free for everyone, but people will argue that it takes man power and energy to take out the ground, energy that comes from the ground so therfor refure back to my 1st point " its not theirs to be selling on to the people in the 1st place. The law unfortunately is on the utility companies side, if you fail to pay them for energy they will get a court order making you pay. So follow and uphold the law, the bank giro "check" they put at the bottom of a bill, fill it out, endorse it, put your name and adress and send it back to them as it is a form of payment under the Bill of exchange act 1882 addressed soley for the cheif executive offinance. Witholding your money from utility companies The Law public utility and any organization which provides services to the general public, although it may be privately owned. Public utilities include electric, gas, telephone, water, and television cable systems, as well as streetcar and bus lines. They are allowed certain monopoly rights due to the practical need to service entire geographic areas with one system, but they are regulated by state, county and/or city public utility commissions under state laws.
