Power company donations questioned



Georgia Power Co. has generously announced it will match dollar for dollar every contribution to the Salvation Army. This is a truly fine organization that helps many people, and I am always happy to donate.

My question is, will Georgia Power donate their own profits, or their customers' dollars through the higher power bills that are already predicted for this summer?

I hope the Public Service Commission will monitor this "generous offer."
