Back in the 80s Edison in California spent a lot of time pushing us to design chilled water storage and off peak use high rise buildings to avoid having to build new power plants. A lot of these systems use more TOTAL KW or Arab oil.
At least we avoided having to build power plants and install scrubbers to avoid pollution. Those plants would be amortized by now.
Not having excess capacity also helps keep the cost to consumers higher and increases profits. I wonder if the oil companies have thought of that?
Talk is cheap... except when Congress does it.
