Vectren Evansville Wastes Fuel

I know I’m not alone with my frustration of fuel costs, electricity costs, and natural gas costs.  However, I can almost understand it in todays economy, but Vectren a local monopoly, should be doing it’s part to help with conservation, especially when it effects the bottom line.  Too bad they don’t monitor the Vectren service guys fuel consumption or downtime.

My regular 9-5 job is positioned directly across from a Vectren substation and I have a big window to watch what goes on outside.  At minimum 3-4 times a week there is a Vectren service truck setting inside the fenced in area, just setting, not doing any work.  Today was no exception, because there has been a man in a Vectren service vehicle setting there idling for over 4 hours.  Did you hear me, idling, not turned, off, running in the A/C while the man inside reads a book.

It’s an outrage that Vectren allows this type of behavior to go on and it happens all the time.  Granted it doesn’t last 4 hours generally, but for more than an hour is the norm.  How much could they save as a company if they would force their service guys to either shut their trucks down while they are goofing off on company time or a better idea, just do some work.

I will be calling Vectren this evening to voice my complaints.  I apologize if this post is a little thrown together, I’m typing this while I’m so angry my eyes are bleeding.
