Exactly... when independents wanted to provide PBX’s to companies with services that ATT much cheaper than the offerings of ATT we, (ATT) came up with the excuse that the equipment would ruin the telephone cable. Judge Green had decreed that we had to open up the network. We came up with a large solid state “Network Interconnection Device” That was designed to fail regularly and leave the end user out of Service. Passive aggressive “cooperation” at its best.

I learn from history and previous behavior.

With some 25 million automobiles in California (not counting trucks), can anyone calculate the electrical demand for a similar all-electric fleet of cars?
25 million cars X 24kwhr (70 miles in electric car)= 600,000 MWhr. Almost three full days output from a 1000MW nuke. That would be 45-75 sq miles of solar and still take the three days.
