Will high electric bills help clean ash spill in eastern part of state?
To the Editor:
Thanks, Wilson Post, for printing our letters that concern the well-being of Lebanon and Wilson County.
To Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation officials, I’d like to ask if our electric bills being so high are helping to pay for the ash spill mess caused in East Tennessee. We know the weather has been cold, and when the December bill was over $400, more than ever before, we said nothing, but the January bill was $617, and we didn’t heat that much space. What could we do but pay the bill?
They have the say-so, and we have to take whatever they say. People in other states say they never heard of such a thing, and it will sure discourage people from moving here. The first thing new people want to know before buying a house is how much or about how much is the electric bill.
