Last month, Avista gave Washington residents rate cuts of 6.4 percent, and this month they take back that plus so that they can update power poles, electrical equipment, etc. They want us to believe that charging us more for equipment replacement has nothing to do with taking back the 6.4 rate cuts last month? Who are they trying to kid? Do they really think that the public is that stupid? Apparently so.
When they figured the millions it will take to upgrade all of these projects, they forgot one thing that the increase will do: Scott Morris, I am sure, will receive some of this as his again yearly pay raise.
I, for one, am calling the regulators, and I hope that all of us can put a halt to this robbery.
