    PG&E and CA the plan all along

    PG&E really has not caused the fires in CA. But they are a cash cow target. I said way back this was a way for CA to take PG&E over and do so at a steal. Here it comes. Of course once CA owns it they will be exempt from starting fires and we will be back to blaming Global warming again.

    "On the heels of a similar proposal in San Francisco, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said Monday that the third biggest city in the state is considering multiple options -- including buying out PG&E and turning it into a nonprofit cooperative -- to better serve the electricity needs of its constituents, according to the San Francisco Chronicle."

    To my understanding from hearing some from folks from CA is that PG&E has went bankrupt a few times and CA has not been successful in buying them. Lefty freaks are entirely to blame for the wild fires in CA as they/CA do not allow controlled burns to get rid of undergrowth, so when a fire starts it has plenty of fuel.

    Nebraska has public owned utilities, and it works pretty good there. I am sure California will screw it up though once the politicians figure out how they want to tax it in the name of climate change.

    I dont really have time to get into it but I'll say this. CA politicians have become masters of creating a crisis and then telling everyone itll only be solved if they control it.

    All of our problems here in CA:

    Blackouts
    Homelessness
    Housing shortage
    Illegal immigration
    Pollution
    Etc.

    Are only a means to money and control for the Democrats.

    Cali mandates all new homes have solar panels. Ok. Then Cali buys PG&E. Bet you that then they mandate every home be connected to the grid. No more off-grid allowed. They’ll pay you pennies for the power you produce and sell back. Charge you like hell for power you consume from them. And no off-grid allowed cause we can’t have the consumers independent of the government owned utilities companies. Win-win for them and lose-lose for you.

    Commiefornia -dRATS need to be reigned in and culled.

    No more Federal money for their BS and thumbing their nose at our Constitution. Lock up the Socialists who run/support sanctuary cites/CRIMINAL ALIENS. They are federal Felons and put them all in the crowbar hotel. Sorry, no more Gooberment jobs for you , felon. That would be judges too; disbar them.

    Same with any LE enforcing these criminal actions; you're a felon now no LE job for you, except for in the crowbar hotel wearing a free striped jumpsuit. You might have some "friends" at your new abode, they'll be glad to see You again.

    Yank any and all Federal monies used to fund such crimes; I/Americans should not be paying for this.

    AS far as original subject, most power company executives are crooks, and -dRATs are of their ilk.

    Right now there is a shortage of Electrical Linemen. Any young man who is trying to determine his career might take a look at becoming a Lineman. (DISCLAIMER...PNNA.. Pussy's Need Not Apply) The amount of money that a young able bodied man can make in the Electrical Transmission and Distribution Industry will blow some of y'alls mind.

    Municipal owned Electric Providers have a notoriously hard time finding qualified Lineman and the trend today is for Contractors to handle the linework and that costs big money.

    This "not for profit" crap that the State of California is trying to pitch is too funny to even waste time thinking about. Does anyone think that this will solve California's problem? Hell no.

    Here's the catch, the mandate is for GRID TIE SOLAR! Not OFF GRID SOLAR.

    The idiots are now finding out that when the Grid is down, their solar does not work because, wait for it...wait for it...MOST DID NOT INSTALL BATTERIES! HA!

    Exactly! Grid tie solar. So they make you spend big bucks for your solar setup and still charge the shit out of you for their electricity they force you to buy at night. And once they take ownership of PG&E they will outlaw off-grid systems.

    Here in PA the folks that installed grid-tied solar soon found out that the utility’s don’t even want to buy their excess solar power. They have to by law. But powerful lobbying has ensured that the electric companies are paying you squat for your power but charging you full price for theirs.

    I had the utility asshats trying to get me to put one of their crunchy greeny commie solar installations in one of my fields. I'm talking acres.

    What you need is some of the dead Prius/crunchy car batteries, from a junkyard, and tie that into your own off grid system. Those batts have HUGE capacity. And those "green cars" won't be lasting very long/disposable, so they will become available soon. Back that up with alternative charging systems: wind, water, or diesel/gas.

    You could do a generator running steam from crap wood/biomass that's better for the environment than E10 gasocrap.
