    Just so I can get a clear understanding...You feel you should be able to use any amount of power you want even if that means someone else who is also paying for the same service losses their service because you don't want to cut back on your usage?

    You always have a choice. There are more than enough ways to generate your own power if you choose to.

    Obviously, if I'm operating an atom smasher in my livingroom, I can't use as much as I want. However, short of that, I can do what I please. I doubt very seriously I'm going to cause someone else to lose their service.

    Not in an apartment, it ain't. I set up a wind generator on my porch and built a battery bank, just to run the TV and a couple of lights. Management told me to romve it and I refused. A few days later, I got a visit from the fire marshal. With him, he had the city ordinance that prevented me, a non-licensed, non-bonded technician from configuring any electrical apparatus in an apartment complex, without the express permission and direction of the owner of the property. So, no, in my situation, I don't have a choice.

    In most cases your right. I was implying where dictation on thermostat's are in affect from power supply companies during times of energy conservation (heatwaves, blizzards, etc.).

    I've never seen thermostat levels being dictated in a non-conservation time.

    Then move. You have choices, and right now you are supporting socialism, making you a socialist.

    I've never seen conservation periods, but I don't live in Librul Land.

    By "Librul Land" you mean any place with a population over 50,000?
