Re: “CMP says October windstorm cost it $69 million, and customers will help pay the cost” (Jan. 18):

The Maine Public Utilities Commission has obviously amended its mission statement to include a new formula – “P/C = A/R,” or “Pro-Corporate = Anti-Ratepayers” – allowing CMP to add a surcharge to the bills of ratepayers, recouping millions of dollars recovering from an event caused by Mother Nature.

Should this request become reality, the Legislature should rename the PUC the “Corporate Utilities Commission.”
