Chapin LTE: Money spent on CMP corridor could be put to better use

Times Record

If anyone is looking for a reason to convert CMP to a public utility, I have an example. We have been waiting for months to have CMP come and upgrade our service entrance from 100 amps to 200 amps. I thought we finally had a firm date. The electrician came and started the process and got as far as disconnecting our power. He called CMP to check on them because they were late. They had canceled the appointment without telling the electrician. Despite the electrician’s plea, they would not come on the appointed day. They are now scheduled for next week. This has been going on since May. In the meantime, they are spending millions of our dollars on advertising promoting the corridor, something that benefits out-of-state customers not us. Why should a foreign-owned company be allowed monopoly control over a resource we all need? The money spent on the corridor could be put to better use, trimming trees and hiring workers, not enriching shareholders.
