Letter: Duke wants customers to pay for its mess
I would like to know why Duke Power thinks their customers should pay to clean up the mess they caused. They make enough profit to take care of their problems. I wonder how much their top five executors make a year, probably more than most of us make in eight years. A lot of us Duke Power customers are on Social Security and yet they are asking for a 16.7 percent rate hike. Instead of gouging us to death, why not offer a senior citizen discount to those who qualify? I am a widow and that extra $18.72 would fill my gas tank for a month.
Duke Power, you don’t have the best reputation as it is, don’t make it worse.
