Over the weekend, I received a call from Potomac Edison regarding receiving my "free" home energy conservation kit. I said that I have energy efficient light bulbs, power strips and water conservation devices for my showers, so I don't need the kit. She said "but it's free." I said nothing is for free, what's the catch? She said the state of Maryland has mandated that Potomac Edison offer these kits to their customers. I said how generous of Potomac Edison; so you are covering the cost of this "kit" at no cost to the customer? She responded, "No, it's already in your rates." I said, "So I am already paying for it, whether I take it or not? “ She said, "Yes." What a deal. Thank you, Maryland state government. You always know what's best for me.
