Friday letters: SCE&G’s rolling blackouts lousy

January 17, 2014 

— I lived in Milwaukee, Wis., for 30 years and never had to worry about rolling blackouts because of cold weather (“Rolling blackouts intensify freeze,” Jan. 8). This to me is unacceptable and should make it clear that we need competition in the energy market.

If SCE&G cannot provide adequate power to keep up with demand, other companies should be allowed to shop their products to consumers who continue to pay more for constant price hikes while receiving less.
