Upset with PG&E

Upset with PG&E

There are 4 comments on the Vallejo Times-Herald story from Feb 12, 2011, titled Upset with PG&E. In it, Vallejo Times-Herald reports that:

An open letter to Gov. Jerry Brown: As you are probably aware, we are getting robbed blind by a very dishonest public utility called PG&E. A critical evaluation would show that they generate only a very small percentage of the power that they "retail." They buy most of the power off the "grid" at an exorbitant price, and then they mark it way up.

"A solution is to require PG&E to generate a minimum of 90 percent of its power in state, and rates to be set at the average of the three surrounding states. Ratcheting should be abolished. Deferment of maintenance should be punished severely, and a fund should be established."
You do realise the lack of power generation facilities in the State begins way back with Jerry Brown's decision to kill the Sundesert nuclear plant that was to be built near Blythe, CA in the 1970's? California also lost generation capacity when power deregulation "divested" power providers from power generators in the State in 1999. Many old power plants were simply scrapped and the property sold to developers for malls and housing tracts.
How about YOU taking some responsibility and use the California Solar Initiative to put solar PV, hot water on your home. www, gosolarcalifornia.ca.gov or www.dsireusa.org Then PG&E can pay you for the power you produce above and beyond your home's daily power requirements.

Funding for work done improperly is just another way to milk the system...It is intentional and used in many government contracts.

Currently we make 40% of our power here. PG&E would like to build more power plants, but the liberals have made it almost impossible.
