Your PGE guest made a reference to "affordable and reliable" electricity. Affordable compared to what? Our personal health, our planet's health? Reliability goes with the word "convenience". It seems to me that it is time for us to do with a little less convenience, and the last thing we want electricity to be is "affordable."
Fossile fuel energy needs to be "dear" .
Easy for me to say I suppose because I can afford to pay higher prices. But partly that is because I have done extensive insulation of my home over the past 4 decades. I buy the more expense electricity, and am having PV cells added to my roof, and though my heat pump provides me with an air conditioning option, I use other means of keeping the house cool, and limit my use of heating and cooling to under 65 degrees and over 85.
