The 46% solution is what I've heard in the news, as the solution to curb electrical consumption problem in CA. The rates are suppose to GO UP 46%! I'm sure that will do it.

I don't think California realizes all of the Fortune 500 Companies and other businesses they will be driving out of CA with these and I'm sure more to come electricity hikes. It's already difficult for the small business owners to stay in business or still give the quality of customer service they use too with the minimum wage pay raise, and now add another 46% increase of electricity rates and I'm sure more increases on top of that to follow? Pretty soon, our jails will be filled with a new kind of crook, One who steals electricity and sells it on the black market. *LOL*

As far as I'm concerned, CA is cutting it's own throat!

BTW, anyone have a spare Generator & Wood stove for sale? Better yet, how about a nice home they want to sell outside of CA.? /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

Yeah, I was just half-asleep this morning when answering your first post on this subject...

I heard something about that on the news....

Usually, between the shop and house, electricity runs about 120-140.00 per month...so I guess we'll budget another 60.00 or so...that's about an hour of labor....and I know just whose job it'll be charged to...*G*

We've been coverting over to propane over the last year....now, we heat the house, cook, dry clothes and BBQ with propane....still have an electric oven though...
Now I can run the house completely with the generator....in summer (this summer looks to be a zinger), we can use the evaporative cooler when running the generator (the AC draws too much juice)...

For most households, a 10KW genset is plenty....I can even do limited shop work while running the house...If things get real bad, I'll have to re-install my phase converter to run my 3 phase machines on the generator...

We can't control the idiots who've created this mess, all we can do is do what's best for ourselves and our families....my friends in Ukraine are getting a good laugh at this...I keep them updated and we compare outage notes (they're an everyday occurance there, along with the water getting shut off)...

Suddenly, California has joined the third world...*G*

Well, I have it on good authority that we're doing just a little bit better than 3rd world...*G*

My friend Halia, who lives in Lviv, flew out here to stay with Renee and I during Thanksgiving '99 and she was quite impressed with California, even our somewhat backward portion of it...
We took her camping over to Morro Bay in our RV and she got a chance to see the area which feeds the world, which is right in my backyard (the West Side), on the way....

Trust me, we've got it pretty good here, even in power-starved CA...*G*
