    LOL.....Anyone who reads anything from CNS news and takes it as fact needs a Catscan.

    A) What the hell is the "Electricity Price Index"?

    B) New headline....."The price of milk is at an all time high! Thanks Obama!"

    ...or MSNBC, or Mother Jones, or Huffington Post, or Fox News, or CNN (on occasion).

    In this particular case, it's correct.

    The US Dept of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics has maintained the data for some time. BLS data source #APU000072610.

    Now, it hasn't climbed to a new all-time record, but it climbed to a new record for the month of February.

    Could it be that Solar is forcing power company to have increases? If so, better jump in now and get solar to hedge the increases before it gets worse. My panels were installed last month. I'm still waiting for the electric company to change my meter before the system can be turned-on......they are in no hurry to do so.
