The San Joaquin Valley is a hot, dry place. No doubt. There are dust storms, allergies, and Valley Fever to weed out the weak. Another test is this. Can you afford your electricity bill? Well, can ya?
It seems some valley folks are bending the ear of Pacific Gas & Electric Co. – PG&E to convince them that valley rate payers are tired of subsidizing electricity for city slickers. The Kern County Taxpayers Association is really helping us out by fighting the fight. The extra special part about the whole thing is that it’s pissing people off in the Bay Area and along the coast.
Oh yeah. We like that.
Read the article in the San Francisco Chronicle. Make sure to read the comments. Ain’t it funny how those that had their rates subsidized by us don’t want to subsidize our rates? There’s another article in the Bakersfield Californian too.
Oh, it will be a fun fight to watch. I hope we finally win one.
