Say NO to Subsidies or Special Deals for Millstone!
Dominion Resources, a private energy company based in Virginia, operates the
Millstone Nuclear Power Station in Connecticut and claims that the plant is
unprofitable. Dominion is seeking legislation to set up a special
deal that would allow them to charge more for the power they generate for Connecticut. This special deal will subsidize their profits without
requiring financial disclosures to the state or ratepayers.
The rules that Dominion and other power generators operate under in
Connecticut and throughout New England are the rules that they asked for when
the state deregulated electricity nearly 20 years ago. Now that the power
rates might slightly improve for the ratepayers, Dominion wants to operate by
the rules from the 1990s.
Send a letter to your state legislators and the Governor and ask them to oppose
Senate Bill 106, a bill that is being presented in public statements as
beneficial to ratepayers, but does the exact opposite.
