the current carbon credit laws in place, power plants
producers are now seeking ways to reduce their carbon emission. Power
companies are also integrating alternative energy as part of their
overall production. In addition to their integration drive, power
plants are rewarding consumers who help in this struggle (encouraging
customers to use less and install energy saving systems). All this act
of good faith, reflects the pressure the government is applying on the
industry to clean up it act; but more importantly, this reflects the
achievement of environmentalist and the influence they exhibit on law
makers to recoil the dilemma of global warming. Good job.
is a win-win situation for the consumer(at lease that's the make
believe); use less energy in order to safe the Earth. This is only the
surface of a well articulated political illusion.
But this behavior is no
longer acceptable, where
government does just enough to keep the environmentalist out of their
ear, and the power company pretends to care only to keep the government
Besides, a government
imposed fine on the power
will only reflect in the consumer pricing- yes, when the power company
default the consumer pays.
Alternative energy, such as
solar are becoming increasingly popular. Of course, with this new
carbon pollution fine on the power companies, the non carbon polluting
companies can now compete. After all, there is no tax on the wind nor
on the sun, this is all profit; and again the consumer gets the short
end of the stick. When a nuclear, wind or solar plant comes on line do
you see reduction in your electric bill? When an existing carbon fuel
plant integrate renewable wind or solar to their system, do they send
you a memo informing you of this upgrade and the saving to you as a
If you invest into a hybrid
vehicle, you expect to
reduce your monthly fuel cost. The idea is to save money and the

We are in the situation we are in today because of
consumers advocacy. We live in a democratic country, yet act as if we
are under dictatorship ruled. We are not strong armed by the power
companies to accept their costly polluted energy, at lease not by laws.
Every home owner reserved the right to generate his/her own
electricity. Affordable solar panels, small wind turbines, and power
conditioning hardware and software are making this reality possible and
Do you honestly think it is in the best
interest of the government to pursue energy independence? Whose
contribution you think found the expensive, over-extended campaigns?
What do you think VIP contributors are contributing to and for? I am
not to any extent saying consumers are naive; all I am saying its time
middle class consumers stop allowing themselves to be treated like the
Increase concerns about global warming trigger an
escalating concern, and so the cry for energy independence become
louder in Washington - but that all that is – the tune of
gibberish. The prior president also mentions of energy independence,
ironically, the same time that California car companies were killing
the electric cars. Several president spoke of the urgency for energy
independence, none did anything. Here we are today, consuming even more
and doing less. Do you really think this administration is any
different? Americans have heard the talks- now it is time to walk the
walk. I say, 'show me'.
Washington methods perpetuate. They will place
fines on the power company; these company will integrate enough
renewable energy to keep them operational efficient while passing along
any government fine onto you the consumer, while blaming you the
consumer for consuming and wasting too much. You then feel guilty and
cut back on your consumption, deprive yourself of the luxury modern
technology provides and you so richly deserve. This idiotic propulsion

action. This time it's personal.
of pushing for energy independence, lets' take a tare approach and look
closer to home for the answer. Let root for ENERGY GRID INDEPENDENT.
Let us send a clear message to the power company
and the government through the transparency of our union –
‘step up or get up'.
we install solar panels, up-draft wind turbines, and conditioning
devices to reduce our dependence, but even more empowering, let us
demand off - grid technology so that tomorrow we can become fully
independent. Like the old saying, 'If we build it , they will come'; I
say, 'If we demand it - they will build'.
That right, if you
hire a lawyer for representation and you are dismayed, surely you will
fire him despicably. You are not getting justice from you power company
and the government, why be condescending? Lets flex our consumer
muscles and propagate a clear depiction and let it resonates
throughout- ENERGY GRID INDEPENDENT.
