I am tried of being threatened by Dominion with the suggestion that its offer to purchase SCANA is best deal we ratepayers will ever get and that if we don’t et it, the lights will go out, for good. This Dominion deal is best for Dominion first and SCANA shareholders second and no deal for ratepayers at all.
Legislators should repeal the Base Load Review Act, let Dominion crawl back into its hole, allow the SCANA share price to drop lower and let a more ratepayer-friendly utility purchase SCANA at a price that allows the new owner to write off the entire mess and not stick ratepayers with a mistake the SCANA shareholders are clearly responsible for.
The State publishes a cross section of the letters we receive from South Carolinians in order to provide a forum for our community and also to allow our community to get a good look at itself, for good or bad. The letters represent the views of the letter writers, not necessarily of The State.
