    This ridiculousness shouldn't be allowed to continue. Either evolve and adapt or die, there shouldn't be any protection, it should be the same treatment as any business... BIG or small.

      Yes exactly, and this is why I oppose carbon taxes. You don't have a choice. You can only use what they allow you to, kill the competition and end up paying the tax.

      I agree. We don't owe them diddly squat!

    I just wanted to remind everybody that Warren Buffet owns NV Energy.

    I'm fairly certain that where I am what is happening to MGM is also happening to regular homes, you pay a fee to tap into the GA Power lines or something like that. Not that it matters for our state, the average home has something like 400sqft of usable space, that's around 25 panels, each panel gets an average of 190watts, depending on brand. So that's only .19 kw/h per panel at 25 panels so 4.75 kw/h total, at 6 hours a day of good light, 28.5kw/h a day in optimal conditions. That just doesn't seem like much at all. Not to mention based on lack of incentives where I am that means it'd take nearly 15 years to recover the cost of installation and panels... in that time some will be damaged, fail, etc. and need repair or replacement, I'd never recoup the initial investment let alone get to keep up as panels become better and better.
