The huge country wide grid is a waste of copper, steel and aluminum. It is vulnerable in several ways. The so called smart grid is an excuse to charge customers more.

What gets me is that the people on the grid get billed a monthly fee even if they use zero electricity. Also, those people who have gone to a more expensive grid tied alternative power system get paid only a percentage of the rates for excess power generated and sold to the utilities.

The grids should be broken up into local grids with locally generated power, and independent home alternative energy systems should be encouraged, too.

It makes me glad I have been on a totally independent solar electric system for 14 years.

I wonder if the electric companies charge you if you want their power removed. I wouldn’t doubt they would try to screw you there, too.
