Or, if they make your electricity bill go down: An fair attempt to make
the consumers pay the correct price for their actual usage.
It's all a matter of perspective.
I was quite surprised when I read in SF.Chron recently that there
are consumers in No.Cal who pays more for a kWh than we do here in
Denmark, (.38$/kWh) I thought we had the highest (taxed) rates in
the civilized world, but I guess not.
Energy never was cheap, we just deluded ourselves into thinking so.
