One Response to Q: My community’s electric bills are killing me. My residents and I now pay 30% more than we paid just 3 years ago. Will the increases ever stop?

    My magic 8 ball says no. Electricity companies are being required to update the grid (Smart Grid), produce a certain amount of electricity from renewable sources, and motivate consumers to reduce consumption. All these are either funded or encouraged through rate increases. The only way that I see that you are going to reduce your electricity costs is onsite generation. Remember in Mad Max Beyond Thunder Dome, how “Barter Town” produced its own energy? We should be thinking about this model for our industry.
