Why do it? Because we can.

I just heard an announcement from our quasi-governmental utility company, who had the highest paid public employee in the State (and gave him almost a million dollar retirement present), that they made a really good deal for the citizens who own them in buying some electricity.

They were able to buy power from the federal/private grid for $5 per megawatt hour.

The TV that sits here in this room uses about 350 watts per hour.

Are they telling me that if I run that TV for 2850 hours, 24 hours per day -- for four months -- for a cost that they will charge me of $5?

HAHAHAHAHHA..... what a foolish thought.

They charge their customes about $0.055 per kilowat hour (and they claim to be a cheap supplier -- don't they all?). This means an income for them of about $5500 for that $5 purchase.

They just lost an election to build an almost billion dollar power plant -- to help the consumer, of course. Anyone wonder why?
