Our electricity provider, Xcel, has a nifty little scheme. They will let you pay “just a little more” to provide wind energy to your home.
Guess many people are too dumb to realize all power generated, regardless of source, goes into one power grid. All users draw from the same grid.
Wind generated energy costs more to produce and enter the grid. Xcel wants us to help pay for this more expensive energy.
I have no problem with Xcel asking their customers to subsidize more expensive sources. What I do object to is their bullshit public relation stunt to suck in gullible customers. It is a “feel good” way to raise energy costs without the pesky legal way which involves a regulatory agency, hearings and the such. Bah!
