Our county generates electricity from burning trash and have done so for a couple of decades. They get whatever the utility company pays for fuel elsewhere. One of the things they are wanting to do is bring in trash from other counties because we don't generate enough electricity to make it profitable and there is idle time on the incinerator.
We don't do much solar because of lack of a lot of sun. Do do some wind power and, of course, Niagara Falls. I have heard that a lot of areas of the south (where solar would be great) politicians make it almost impossible to get solar because it would hurt the utility companies.
Reminds me, when I lived in California, LA was asking everyone to conserve water. They wanted to save about 10%. We saved about 25%. Then the water department wanted to raise the rates because they weren't making enough for their fixed costs.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
