I just got a letter from the power company saying that due to a recent court ruling, a monthly power credit that PGE customers used to receive is going away.

You may remember that I had complained a few months ago about no longer receiving that credit because I had switched to wind power. So while I feel bad for all of the other customers who are going to lose this credit, it looks like I'm not going to be affected by the rate increase. Woo hoo!

This rate increase on traditional power also makes the wind option a lot more appealing. Unfortunately for anybody who is now thinking that it might be a good idea to switch, it looks like they are no longer allowing new subscribers since they are already at capacity for their current wind farm. But they are working on two new wind farms to bring more capacity online. Looks like the virtuous cycle may be working...
