What happened to Rocky Mountain Power's commitment to blue skies ("Rocky Mountain Power asks for 4% rate hike," Tribune, Jan. 7)?
Under RMP's latest rate increase proposal, customers who help generate renewable energy would be penalized with an additional monthly fee. Such a move would likely discourage residential and business customers from installing solar energy panels or wind turbines.
It seems that beneath the public-relations veneer of its Blue Sky and solar lottery programs is a Rocky Mountain Power still wedded to fossil fuels and hostile to any real progress toward clean, renewable energy. In our community's quest for clean air solutions, RMP remains part of the problem.
