""We agree that at some point you're going to have to make some adjustments to all of the rates to maintain the grid," Von Gausig said. "Instead of collecting $50 to $100 per month from each solar user, collecting $3 to $5 from all customers could accomplish the same goal.""

The utilities are used to getting away with "bundling" costs into the KWh rate. If you changed the business model and accounting practices to "Unbundle" these maintenance costs, one might find the utilities have been enjoying revenues they have not earned for decades. Where are those RICO laws when you need them?

Good idea. Lets allow folks to learn when they are getting ripped off by their neighbors with grid-tie PV.

Yet another know nothing, DO nothing "thought" from a victim of institutionalized stupidity. You're part of the problem Kiteman, when can society expect you to become part of the solution? What was it that YOU have DONE to take responsibility for YOUR energy use?

YOU have NEVER answered the question. Your cackling red nosed, floppy shoed assertion of "thief, thief" is in itself a "broken record." The worst lie you have told so far is the one you keep telling YOURSELF. Jeez, Kiteman, perhaps it's time to ask Mommy what you should DO.

...folk who want things to be fair. Yeah, right. Put your fairness in one hand, crap in the other, see which one fills up first. Jesus, Kiteman can YOU possibly DO something? Whining and lying is not gonna get it done. The utility industry will play "fair" when there is a choice for the individual homeowner in where and how his energy needs are met.
