Should Electric Companies ''Virtue Signal'' or Provide Cheap Reliable Power

    That is the question asked by Spectator Australia as two major power companies have reversed course and opposed the green energy agenda there. They believe that power companies are primarily responsible for providing cheap and reliable power, not "virtue signalling" with expensive and unreliable wind and solar.

    The same question should be asked of power companies here. It is sickening to hear Duke Power ads promoting consumer ripoff green energy, for example.

    "Virtue signalling" is a term for kowtowing to leftist ideas to curry favor with leftist groups. That is what Duke Power is doing in North Caroilina.

    Australia used to have the cheapest electric prices in the world until Labour Party subsidies and promotion of wind and solar came along. Now they are among the most expensive, neck and neck with Germany.
