Dang, two days without taking my meds....when do I get delusional.

I just didnít explain myself well....

On the big picture....that is my take on hydro power.

Everyone is clamoring for value added expensive so called green electricity...but all the utilities are trying to add on expensive green electric as the means to boost electric prices and profits in general.

Even as demand is down signaling a deduction in prices, if you believe the competive market...Joe and Jane six pack has severe income problems and the utilizes are gaming to raising electric prices.

I posted these links because a contributer on another thread said that their preference for replacement baseload power was small hydro electric stations. What are your thoughts on replacement baseload power?
