More specifics needed on time-of-use rates
In response to a guest column by Chuck Eaton (“A win-win rate for energy use,” Opinion, Oct. 22):
It is true that Georgia Power does have a time-of-use rate for electric vehicles as he described.
But after waiting two months for both the utility and the Public Service Commission to respond to requests on how this rate structure will be physically and accurately billed to the customers, there is no answer.
I purchased a Chevrolet Volt in May, saw the benefits of this rate structure and want to sign up.
However, until the utility can give a customer the basic historical and current usage data broken down into the rate categories (which change three times per day), signing up for this rate seems like a bigger leap of faith than I made in purchasing an electric vehicle in the first place.

Romney wrong to oppose Iraq pullout
How unpatriotic of Mitt Romney to say pulling out of Iraq was putting our victories at risk.
The mission there is accomplished and it’s time to bring our military home.
Is it Romney’s opinion that we should keep our military over in the Middle East forever — spending millions of dollars and losing American lives?
We cannot do the fighting for all the Middle East. It is time they stood up and defended themselves.
Next, Romney will be criticizing President Obama for reducing the military in Afghanistan.
Does he not realize we need that money back home in America?
Shame on you, Mitt.
