No to subsidizing the power companies

Mr. Dan Tschirgi

In your letter you cited a cost of $1 or $2 per month. Where did you get this range of costs per household? Every article I have read has the household cost between $9 and $10 per month. A significant difference to those without jobs or living on a fixed income. Also, why should the consumers pay for something they may not get (they are not required to build the plant) and float the power companies an interest free loan? Especially since they reported profits for the past two years in excess of $600 million per year.

In response to:

Your Opinion: Make rate hike debate transparent

During a recent KRCG newscast the veil came off, at least for my eyes, from those opposed to the law to let Ameren collect costs upfront for environmental and safety permits for the second nuclear power reactor.
