Letter: Rocky Mountain Power has it all wrong
First Published Aug 07 2014 04:50 pm • Last Updated Aug 07 2014 05:20 pm

Instead of complaining, Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) and like-minded utilities should be thankful. They should pay, not charge, reward, not penalize, customers who have rooftop solar arrays. In their small but helpful way, those customers help mitigate the serious and costly damage RMP is doing to human and environmental health by burning coal — an extremely dirty, polluting form of energy.

Shame on RMP. They could and should be a much more responsible corporate citizen. In fact, they should set a good example themselves by phasing out coal and replacing it with clean, safe, renewable power like their more responsible rooftop solar customers are doing.
