plants shut down. Building a new coal plant is not a likely option for any electric utility in Oklahoma or anywhere, except China, today. There they are building them as fast as they can. Three new planned coal-fired electric generating plants in Oklahoma have been cancelled over the past few years. Considering today’s regulatory environment I am sure that all three of these utilities are glad they did not get any fur- ther down the road in building these new plants.

Just in the past month I read where two proposed new nuclear gen- erating plants in Texas were being abandoned due to escalating costs and uncertain regulatory requirements. You may be opposed to burn- ing coal to make electricity and not in favor of nuclear generation, but these decisions mean there will be less generating capacity available on the electric grid for consumers. 1104297300 Today wind energy, which we fully support, is highly subsidized with tax breaks for investors and still not reliable when demand is the greatest. Solar energy is still the most expensive but does hold prom- ise for the future. An efficient means of storing electricity during low use times to be consumed during peak times is just not feasible with today’s technology. But researchers are working on that problem. If we as a nation have decided to rethink our electric energy supply, then so be it. But let’s not destroy our economy and standard of living by making abrupt changes that bring the biggest burden to those who can afford it the least. That includes most if not all the people in this room.


The past two years with temperature extremes, Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative customers, including myself, have used a large amount of electricity.


If there is a silver lining in that, it is that these increased sales have kept the Cooperative financially strong without a rate increase. Today the rates of Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative are based on the expense levels of 2008. I do not know what 2013 will bring, but this year and anytime a Manager or a Board Member can say one more year without a rate increase, it is a good thing for consumers, Board Members and Managers. Thank-you.
