Open letter to Yukon Electrical Co. Ltd. and Yukon Energy Corporation:
It is not surprising to find Yukon Electrical (or is it ATCO?) joining the bandwagon propagandizing the good deeds of their company, following in the footsteps of Yukon Energy with its “enough, clean, reliable and cost-effective (according to their web mandate) energy” campaign.
If Yukon Electrical (ATCO) wants to be the good corporate citizen it is proclaiming in these advertisements, then “make the difference” by returning the more than $500,000 it overearned (taken as extra profits for its Alberta shareholders) in 2009.
Its customers deserve better.
Before Yukon Energy can preach how cost-effective it is, it should also return the approximately $500,000 it pocketed from the extra income earned in secondary sales of power in 2009.
Its website states these sales are to benefit other ratepayers as designed in its own edict, not the bottom line of the corporation.
Its customers also deserve better.
The saddest thing about all these promotional ads is that we (the ratepayer) are paying for them.
