Thank you very, very much for April Worley’s cover article, "PG&E pushes vote to limit public power" (Sept. 10). It is so encouraging to know that people, especially people in positions of local government power, are aware and critical of PG&E's efforts to stifle competition through a proposed amendment to the state constitution.
It's not enough that PG&E already gets federal subsidies that give them an unfair competitive advantage. If solar and wind energy companies were fairly given the federal subsidies PG&E is given, we'd all be better off with greater energy independence from fossil fuel's pollution, no excuses for war with distant countries, and freedom from nuclear power's deadly radioactive waste.
Apparently PG&E and their shareholders are afraid that when we, the consumers, constituents and tax payers, are given a fair choice, they
will come up short, even despite their already unfair federal subsidies.
