I hope that GA. Power does not find out!!! I mentioned to one of their employees once that I was experimenting with Solar Panels and he went ballistic...told me that I was going to put them out of business. Instead of getting with it and using solar energy themselves, they are scared of it. Backwoods kind of thinking like that is what keeps us all DOWN!!!

GA Power is already begging the GPSC to implement a "fine" for using alternative means of electricity.
The power companies happen to be the same folks that want us to conserve too.

Wow!!! That really does not surprise me though. Also, they say they want us to conserve, somehow I highly doubt it. Corporate America for ya!

I was informed by a Shaw manager that these panels will be installed by a outside contractor. This contractor only use bull-dyke lesbians. I hope they don't take our police lesbians with them when they leave!

That means the job will be done in half the time and under budget.
Now if they can just catch that scumbag Barf out there maybe they can introduce him to some real fun!

Yeah, Nationwide the power utilities are using the excuse that since the KWh rates contain the charges for "line and maintenance" costs, those who install solar PV on their roofs are not "paying their fair share". Wrong, the utilities do not count the "avoided" costs of NOT having to build new peaker plants, install new power corridors or go to court to defend some project from legal challenges, buy property, get the proper rights of way for the project. They do not have to maintain the homeowners solar PV system. So why do they NOT take these "avoided costs" into account and LOWER non solar PV users rates? Try this: www.dsireusa.org and see what energy efficiency programs are available to you in your State of the Union. www.bluepacificsolar.com , this site has pricing on solar PV kits and fully built and ready to wire PODS. It is a good place to start in order to determine what it would cost you to use solar PV on your home.
