I understand needing to recoup expenses for such a event. But my concern relates to how this is balanced among customers. I am one of those that turned my thermostat down, left lights off, felt like I was freezing in my own home. Should I have to be responsible for those that disregarded the calls for people to be more electricity & fuel conservative and turned the heat up? I doubt you have considered this or even have mechanisms for this. If it is the case that we all pay the same it will make many people less likely to be better stewards of our energy in the next emergency.
