    That's not really bad at all. Thats about 1.25kw average, for a grid tied home, probably about normal

    Thanks to no term limit, and institutionalized (read big city and union) voting, we now have the distinction of having the single largest debt of ANY state in the free world.

    $300,000,000,000 (yup BILLION) for a population of 13.6 million.

    No signs of stopping, in fact all signs point to MOAR MOAR MOAR govt excess and spending and waste.

    Oh, come on. Everybody's doing it. It's the cool thing to do. Like teenage drinking and driving. How can that be a bad thing?

    Cap and trade (aka carbon tax) is the next big thing on it's way. Right on the heals of having just finished selling off the last of the country's gold reserves.

    Transmission (delivery) and connection fees are pretty much the norm in the States. Sad part is, even if you don't use any power at all, you still get hit with those charges every month.
