Another letter giving a pat on the back for charitable contributions from Dominion Energy. Don’t these charities realize it’s the ratepayers’ money that’s being given away?
I would like for SCE&G to decrease my rates and let me decide where my contributions go. I’m sure there are some ratepayers who could dearly use the money taken from them to buy things they need. The money given to these charities gives companies a tax write-off and another feather in their caps from the good-ol’ boys.
