I can’t be­lieve no one has snapped to the so­lu­tion to the PEC prob­lem. The so­lu­tion is sim­ple: Re­move its mo­nop­oly.

We lived in Hous­ton, when Hous­ton Light­ing & Power Corp. lost its mo­nop­oly (through dereg­u­la­tion). Our elec­tric­ity costs fell dra­mat­i­cally, never to reach such strato­spheric highs again, and overnight the elec­tric util­ity per­son­nel were mo­ti­vated to pro­vide fast, ef­fi­cient, profitable and cour­te­ous ser­vice.
