Things like this make me sick to my stomach. It is bad enough what Big Government does on a day to day basis, but I guess the small town and communities feel the need to screw over the citizens as much as possible as well.


Renewable energy has become an attractive option for some, but one local business invested nearly $200,000 in a solar system that the borough won't let it use to capacity.



Publicopinion

So apparently this town runs off of a pool system for borough residents and if the local municipality loses money, then they limit those saving money from solar generation. I don't know...Maybe I am not understanding this right. How do people stop this from happening in other towns? Does this happen anywhere else?

If i was that guy i would do this:
Google.com
Search:Unchip XYZ solar panel system 2010 edition


I'm sure it's pretty easy to. I mean you shouldn't take it when this type of thing happens.
Hire someone to install that for 200K
Probs could find someone to help you out with that problem for less than $1,000

It is a perfect example of a fear enslavement trap to their local borough residents. The municipality loses money by having these residents and businesses get smart and buy into renewed energy. They then tell the residents that if this continues, then the price for people who can not afford energy saving devices like solar panels will go up. I also live in a small town and most of the people here are gullable that way. They continue to do what the system tells them for their own good, losing any backbone that they might of had.

I can only see the municipality losing money if they also have interests in energy production. Their whole stand sounds like it is based more of fear than proper accounting. If energy prices come down then everyone wins, except those producing the costly energy. If some reputable economic forecasting is done to show who the actual winners, losers and overall cost to the community is done, it could help build public support. There are a few different ways things could work.

"No you can not be energy independent/stop paying us for power, that will not be tolerated"

In California, some Dairy Farmers created their own electrical powerplants using methane production.

They are required to tie into the PG&E system. Any and all production of electricity they do not get paid for, only what they use is discounted.

All instituted after they were built. NOW, no one builds them.

So tell me, does the government want self sustaining systems or do they just want the control?
