Speak Out Against the Dominion Energy South Carolina Rate Increase

Dear Commissioners,

As a Dominion Energy South Carolina electric customer, I encourage you to closely examine this electric rate increase proposal (2020-125-e) when it comes before you. Specifically, I am concerned that:

The Dominion Energy South Carolina's proposal will increase my overall rate by 7.75% will be a heavy burden for South Carolinians like myself to bear, especially during a pandemic that has ravished our state's economy.

Furthermore, I believe that allowing Dominion to have a rate of return to over 10%, well above the 8-10% typical for an investor-owned utility, sets a bad precedent during a difficult time for rate-payers.

This increase is beyond what I believe is fair and I hope that you
