Comlmmting iS'Don Hi. len, Executive Vice Prei. dent and General Manager of the company. Are Monongahela's environmental costs included in the price of electricity? ANSWER: In a recent widespread opinion survey of Monongahela customers, this question was asked: "Do you believe that all of the costs of providing electric service, including the cost of cleaner air and water, should be included in the price you pay?" In a way, it might have been sort of a lead- ing question, implying that there is some alternative. But we were startled at the re- suits. Only 26% of the people marked "Yes," 30% expressed no opinion, and 44% said "No." Price Must Include All Costs Somehow we must all come to learn and accept the fact that whatever we want--safer automobiles, higher wages for workers in industry, safer working conditions, better schools, more government services, or cleaner air and water--it is all of us as citi- zens who will have to pay for it in higher prices or higher taxes. The individual citizen --the wage-earner and price-payer and tax. payer--is the only ultimate source of money. Environmental costs which Monongahela must pay result from legislation restricting the amount of pollutants which can go into the air at our power stations and the quality and temperature of the cooling water we return to the rivers. To meet these regulations, Monongahela has invested, and must continue to invest, large sums of money, most of it borrowed. Just like any of the other costs of producing electricity, the costs of these invelJm must be included in the price. There is sim- ply no other source of funds from which they can be paid. We, the public, have demanded many im- provements in recent years. Only recently have we begun to learn the price we must pay. % Monondahela Power n Part of the Allegheny Power System S77 .? ?
