Public Service Board rulings, and my electric bills

To the Editor:

Please find below, a few of rulings that the Public Service Board have made, regarding electric rates that I pay, and some comments.

1) Allowing the sale of Central Vermont Public Service to Green Mountain Power (Canadian Company) and thence to not hold Central Vermont accountable to the ratepayers for the $21 million that we ratepayers gave them.

2) Withholding money every month from my electric bill to support the huge Efficiency Vermont program, which does not seem to be very efficient.

3) Allowing Green Mountain Power to install "smart meters" on our homes, that emit radio frequencies.

4) Notifying we ratepayers, that $1.50 will be withheld from future bills to subsidise low-income ratepayers.

The culmination of the sampling of rulings that you have made, above, raises my dander. Perhaps you think that we ratepayers will apply the "Nudist Colony Theory" to accept the distasteful rulings. That theory is "grin and bare it."

Unfortunately, the humor has gone out of the subject when it comes to our paying for electricity.

Almost a year ago, we were broken into and the thieves "took" a lot of our belongings without our approval. Now you are "taking" our money, in actions that do not seem to be right. Having no competition, we have no choice if we want power.

When I see your title of Public Service Board, it sorta reminds me of when my Dad was farming, and the bull serviced the cows!

Shame on you!
