    “they only supply the grid when the sun is shining”

    Just remember that the most southern point in Germany is at the latitude of Bemidji MN, a mere 120 mi south of the Canadian border. Guess how much solar energy they get in December.

    Shocking that the hard-headed Germans are so gefangen by the green unicorns.

    Not sure what the appropriate phrase is here. Is this putting lipstick on a pig or shutting the doors once the horse has bolted?

    “[C]ertain exemptions to electricity surcharges for energy-intensive industries will be revoked”

    Best news for American industry I’ve heard in a long time. 🙂

    Another example of true blue Mead’s desire to uselessly reform a blue-green program that is inherently wrong and wasteful. The policy was a mistake. It should be reversed.
