I live in Sacramento County where the sun usually shines. We have a people owned municipal utility that has invested in green for a long time. Our solar power goes back into the grid to help all of us. In contrast PG&E is the corporate energy system that always makes decisions based on profit before people. The Tea Party started here. Clearly they would prefer PG&E over SMUD except where they live in the outer suburbs their costs are much higher under PG&E. In my opinion CA has functioned much better after it went Dem after watching the same obstruction tactics here that are now used in Congress. But the bottom line is that we need to go green regardless of our corrupt and often not effective political system.
