Usually, I like to support a candidate. In the PSC race I'm just opposing the incumbents and urging everyone to vote the scoundrels out on their ears. I know nothing about their respective challengers, but I do know they cannot be any worse than the two yahoos who have followed lock-step with Georgia Power and passed along to we consumers costs that have not yet even been incurred,
I don't mind paying fair rates to cover Georgia Power's operating costs and a fair profit for shareholders. But I draw the line at paying for what might be. We have already seen two of three approved rate hikes. The first added $ 14.50 to the average electric bill, the second on April 1st added 1.7 %, and the third increase amount has yet to be determined (by Georgia Power!).
And the PSC has guaranteed Georgia Power an 11.5 % profit. If anyone out there has a suggestion as to where I could make an 11.5% profit, please let me know.
I simply do not believe the current members of the PSC have consumer interests at the forefront. They simply rollover and approve whatever is put before them. I may not get a change but I'm voting for one. I'm voting against the incumbents.
