The Baltimore Sun as a bankrupt corporation does not have the understanding to assess the future in the area of power generation. Their way will result in Maryland citizens freezing to death in the dark. Your oil furnaces still need electricity to run the electric blowers in the furnaces. You can go back to gaslights like in the 1800s, but the gas will burn in your homes while you sleep instead of miles away with smokestacks 1000 feet high like you will have in electricity. One accident like Three Mile Island and all nuclear power will become politically unacceptable.

Nice try to blame the energy crisis on deregulation of ten years ago.
Your logic is just a rationalization to make further mistakes.

Nice article. It is going to take input and sacrifice (gasp!) from all interested parties - ratepayers, utilities, and government in order to reduce our electric consumption. My own solution - go solar! It's not the whole answer - conservation is probably a bigger piece of the puzzle for Maryland - but it is my favorite piece!
