I'm having a hard time believing that Minnesota Power can charge its Superior customers a higher rate to cover the profit loss of Husky Energy. Doesn't this, after all, fall under the cost of doing business clause?
And, why are our elected officials, city and state allowing this to happen? If anything, why isn't Husky Energy being charged for this loss of profit? It is, after all, their fault, not ours, and they did report record profit earnings for their last quarter of operations.
And, if Superior customers are required to pay higher rates in retaliation when it comes to Minnesota Power building their gas plant here, Superior should tell them to stick it and build it elsewhere. It is, after all, just another facility that when it blows up and catches on fire, Superior customers will once again face a rate increase to cover profit loss!
