I have decided to discontinue my monthly contributions to Rocky Mountain Power's Blue Sky program, and I encourage my fellow ratepayers to consider suspending their support as well.
Rocky Mountain Power is attempting to penalize its solar and wind energy-producing customers with a new monthly surcharge ("Rocky Mountain Power asks for 4% rate hike," Tribune, Jan. 6). This would hurt those among us who were willing to invest in a sustainable energy future.
It seems to me that the company may not be as committed to renewable energy as I was once led to believe. I now suspect that what I've been subsidizing all these years has instead been a continuation of my family's reliance on energy produced from dirty sources: coal and gas.
