Post letter writer was right about electric bills and 'sticker shock'

To the Editor: 

This letter is also for any Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation people who have the nerve to read this:

Bob Chaffin's Feb. 4 letter in The Wilson Post makes sense but no likely will be disregarded by anyone who has the ability to do anything about it.

"Sticker shock"? Yes, a woman in Nashville claimed to be stunned by her $195 bill.

I was gone a weekend in January, thus turning down my thermostats to 50 degrees. I leave them at about 60 during the day when I am away which is several days a week. I turn them up to around 66 when at home.

Therefore my bill of $449 was more than a shock. What would it cost if I really kept my house warm? Nancy Evins Lebanon
