Our Redwood Coast Coast Energy Authority

The Times- Standard tells us about that new spin off for buying energy up here: the Redwood Coast Energy Authority. I got a letter about this the other day and there was a commercial on TV about it last night. Call me skeptical, but I don't think I'll opt in. 

This Redwood Coast Energy Authority supposedly acts as a new entity to sell us what we've already been buying. They supposedly give you the option of choosing what type of energy you can buy: renewable vs. standard, etc. I'll give these guys credit compared to what I saw going on in Sonoma County when this was being pushed down there.

Down there the airheads kept thinking they'd be cleaning up the planet with their new choice of green energy, no matter how many times they'd be reminded that most of Sonoma's energy is already "green" since it's geothermal, originating from their Geysers Plant. I haven't noticed if anyone has claimed to save money down there yet. I get the impression those who were against it to begin with still feel it's a bad idea.

But look at who's running ours: "The program is governed by elected officials from Humboldt County and the cities of Eureka, Arcata, Fortuna, Blue Lake, Trinidad, and Rio Dell — Ferndale didn’t opt into the program, according to a statement from the energy authority."

The same people that screw up everything else up here, so call me skeptical. I'll give these folks credit for one thing: At least they're being honest in admitting renewable power is more expensive than traditional. Both the Times- Standard article and the commercial last night pointed out that renewable with cost an extra cent per kilowatt hour.

Renewable means digging more craters the size of Rhode Island, for gathering lithium for the "renewable batteries".
Sustainable means digging more craters the size of Rhode Island, for gathering copper for the renewable solar cells.
There's a reason why China makes solar panels, but America is forbidden to. They're extremely toxic to manufacture.

We want clean, innovative, affordable, time worn, energy choices, not mandates or limited choices.

I'm with you, Fred. The local reps will muck it up,

The local elected follow "comprehensive" plans mandated by the non elected govts the elected reps elected to boss over them.
Are they trying to break free with this new plan, or is it more of the same?
I'll try to find time to research into it later. Thanks for the alert.

I believe you have to opt out otherwise you are just automatically included. I'm pretty skeptical myself.

Yeah, I think you're right. Not sure what I'll do.

Use less, pay less, no need to think more about energy..........

It's too bad those energy producing mechanisms don't keep producing energy even when nobody's using them at the moment. Wait. What?

It's just simple hypocrisy like these 5 quote examples:

1) UPDATE, 10:30 a.m.:

"The Arcata Fire District is requesting that you avoid driving if you can, as firefighters currently have their hands full with traffic collisions.



Arcata Fire District units, along with CAL FIRE Local 2881 Humboldt - Del Norte Chapter, have responded to numerous traffic collisions on HWY 101.

A mixture of heavy hail, snow, and rain have caused overturned vehicles and spin-outs. Please use caution while driving! Drive slowly, carry chains, and turn on your headlights."

2) "Bad weather is causing a flurry of traffic accidents along Highway 101 from Del Norte County to McKinleyville this morning."

3) "According to the California Highway Patrol incident reports, snow and ice have caused multiple vehicles to spin out — particularly around the 8 0’clock hour."

4) "The accident was reportedly caused by very icy roads. An ambulance was dispatched to the scene, but the incident was updated as a non injury crash."

5) "There are also various other accidents along Highway 101 that we can’t say for sure were caused by icy conditions. Check back for today’s latest traffic and weather updates. And drive carefully for Pete sake."

😱😨😵 notice in each quote example the hypocrisy is: the writers of the article and the public service announcements given out by the peace officers and the fire department as blaming the weather is hipocrisy when all other times of the year these very same public agencies are blaming the driver........ and we all know how the government always says to drive according to the conditions of the road but yet they want to blame it on ice, on hail, on rain, on a fart in the wind......... these are the public hipocrites that work for taxpayers.

It is part of the liberal agenda spinning for which they don't want to tell people that they are wrong or that they're doing bad when a news article is drafted due to multiple collissions by head up ass news article means driver error.....but in this situation, it is the fault of the weather.

Lastly, just reading how the Arcata Fire Protection District asks people not to drive because their hands are if that isnt the straw that broke the camels back.....hands are full.

Wait till California makes a law that says you can't drive when the fire department's hands are full.

Pathetic too because in all the words that the article shows that public agencies use to get people not to drive ....... they're also telling people to drive and if they drive to do these things....... how about the Arcata Fire Protection District & CHP just do their job and shut the fuck up with hipocritical public service announcements......
