The concept behind Assembly Bill 2267 was reasonable: Millions of California customers of PG&E and other utilities would chip in a few bucks to help California companies trying to come up with alternative energy.

You don't know half of what is going on with Bloom Energy. Read the columns written by Lindsay Lleveen about Bloom Energy on Green Explored.

"PG&E, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric customers fund such programs by paying a few bucks on monthly bills in various public goods charges."

Isn't there already a line item under the public goods charge for the decommissioning of nuclear plants, like San Onofre. So Edison has been crying that the charges for the last 30 years isn't enough and it will take about 1.8 Billion more dollars to decommission San Onofre. So, does Edison get to use S-GIP funds AND charge ratepayers more per KWh to Decommission a plant that does not create a product anymore? Really, REALLY! The ratepayers are out more on the "public goods charge" for decommissioning the plant and then they will get charged again for S-GIP when Edson cries about having to replace the plant with something like solar or wind. When does this crap become a RICO case?

Green energy is a scam.

Stick with coal and oil. It's not the boogeymen that the ignorant, green weenies would like you to believe.

Support fossil fuels. Support the USA.

John Nichols is paid by Bloom Energy's competitor (Fuel Cell Energy a dying business) to sue Bloom Energy. They are very upset for losing the mega deal with a major utility company serving Delaware and has been unleashing their cohorts of lawyers.

It appears they also pay him to troll the web to post selected material and attacking other authors who do not share his view. I wish I have his job. Pointless life, but Easy money!

Hakeem You name call but the truth is the Bloom Coffins collect solid waste that is hazardous and contains sulfur. They are not as reliable as they said they would be in Delaware (87% actual capacity factor not 96.6% promised) and heat rate HHV of gas of 7.21 mmbtu/mwh for last month and not the 6.6 mmbtu/mwh that was permitted. I think Bloom is a Greenwasher and you have been brainwashed
