You live in Hawaii?

That's the highest one and it looks like it's 7 to 8 cents more.

I will rephrase by saying we have the fifth highest electricity rate and the highest average number of wildfires caused by poorly maintained transmission lines.

ETA: California is a hot mess in so many ways. It's like being in an abusive relationship with someone you love.

California outmigration jumps 38% as departures rise for 7th straight year

Census figures show 691,145 Californians last year left for other states — the largest loss nationally and up 4.6% in a year

People are voting with their feet. California has the highest rate of outmigration of any state right now.

I started a different thread asking people what they would do to improve the world. Some people were suggesting policy change. My point is that laws don't improve things.

This has been known for 2500 years.

Quote:
Rule a nation with justice.
Wage war with surprise moves.
Become master of the universe without striving.
How do I know that this is so?
Because of this!

The more laws and restrictions there are,
The poorer people become.

The sharper men's weapons,
The more trouble in the land.
The more ingenious and clever men are,
The more strange things happen.
The more rules and regulations,
The more thieves and robbers.


Therefore the sage says:
I take no action and people are reformed.
I enjoy peace and people become honest.
I do nothing and people become rich.
I have no desires and people return to the good and simple life.
