I agree something has to be done with all our energy problems. We got to end the set of mind of violating our freedoms. We ALL have to start making sacrifices. If we refuse to do it ourselves then the government is going to have to step in. I think people who drive around in huge SUV's should pay way more for gas than people with small cars. Maybe the same should be done with electricity.
I worked for a plant that had a red flashing light in the control room. The light was controlled by the power company. The light was turned on when the power company was reaching peak power times. When the light came on, the plant had to shut down.
