Tricky Chicken: Now you decided to screw up the whole system by buying a solar panel that produces more gold than you can use.
serpent_sky: Spring and summer, I use a lot of electric for air conditioning. Since I hate bright light, I use strings of Christmas lights, candles, and 40 Watt bulbs. I also hate artificial heat. 2 seaons = $$$$$$$$$ the other 2? $.

BizarreMan: Pokey.Clyde: NecoConeco: I work for an electric company, and we've had that kind of charge since day 1. If a customer uses less than 1000 kWh per month, they get charged $9.99. That's always a fun call to handle. For some reason people think it's unreasonable that they get charged for following all the energy conservation tips we bombard them with.Sounds like the same crap some of the water companies pull around here. Whenever we're in drought conditions, they enact water restrictions to save water. Then they complain about not making as much money because everyone followed the restrictions. So, they raise water rates to make up for their monetary shortfall. Of course, they never lower the rates once restrictions are lifted.Lower prices? Inconceivable!Profits must always increase.
