In a story out of the Denver Post today, Xcel Energy thought they had it all figured out when they tried to charge Boulder Colorado residents and small businesses in the area with solar panels an annual fee of $23.00  for not using their transmission lines. I wonder who bumped their head and came up with this idea; A charge for not using energy, unreal? A charge for going green! Clearly, they didn’t think this threw! Leave it up to these scum bag corporations to come up with this idea, just another company trying to come up with a junk fee to dip into your wallet. But not in Boulder Colorado! read Denver Post story
