Power plants, transmission lines will cost all of us

In response to the excellent letter by Jack Cronemiller, I have been very concerned about the price of our electricity this winter. We are still hurting from having to spend so much on fuel for our vehicles this past year.

Our electric bill this winter was overwhelming. In looking over the past few years, our rates have more than doubled. We have under floor electric heat on ripple. We have replaced most of our bulbs with the new energy efficient ones, and heat only the rooms we use. The construction of new power plants and transmission lines will cost all of us even more, and bankrupt the nation.
