Hardpan Curmudgeon SASS #8967 Posted January 25 Share Posted January 25 Golly gee, lucky us. PG&E - Pacific Gas and Electric - the energy supplier for most of California, just announced they're seeking a rate increase of 36.2% this year. Applied incrementally, so it won't hurt so much - the biggest part (23.5%) will hit in September, during peak usage for air conditioning, when temps are often over 110° . This is on top of increases of approximately 25% over the last two years. "We don't increase the price of power we have to buy," a PG&E spokesperson claims. But since the wethers in sackamenna refuse to allow adequate power production in state by hydroelectric, natural-gas fired generators, nuclear, and don't even THINK about burning coal, power has to be purchased from other states. "We need total wind and solar generation!" But hey... we're gonna save the planet. Right? Road apples. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
