I'm not sure how this kind of news gets no coverage. It's not as if it's being covered up. The story is in plain sight. Yet time after time, these headlines get ignored. The "Swamp" at the PSC has all kinds of creatures. They even have R. I. N. O.'s
These swamp stars care nothing for the Alabama ratepayer. Over and over, they have approved one measure after another that hurt Alabamians. It does not take much investigating to see the PSC members are not public servants. Quite the opposite. They are public enemy number one.
To date, I have found a 72 dollar a year rate increase that did not affect Alabama Powers' profit margin, 57 million dollars they are funneling to the general fund, and now this. In June 2020, Twinkle, Jeremy, and Chip voted to allow the single most significant capacity increase ever by Alabama Power. The price for this expansion that Alabama ratepayers have to cover comes to the tune of 1.1 billion dollars.
Alabama power is not at fault here. The blame lies with the so-called "public servants" on the Public Service Commission. These three have never seen a rate increase they did not like. They do not care that this causes a financial burden to the public they are supposed to serve. My fellow Alabamians, this is your money, not the PSC'S. Call 334-242-5218 today and demand to know why they continue to waste your money. Request to speak with Twinkle. After all, she says on the PSC website to ask for her.
