The numbers don't work. All we have to do is look at other states in this country and look at Europe, particularly Germany, where they are heavly invested in solar - higher rates for electricity and supply disruptions. The sun doesn't shine all of the time people. Then what do you do? You pay out the whazoo for the conventional supply of power furnished by the traditional power suppliers. They have got to make revenue to cover their investment in generation. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
These comments about GCPS are absurd. It is one of the best school systems in the state, especially in the Metro Atlanta area. It is why Gwinnett County grew so fast - people wanted to be here so their kids had a good school system to go to. No, I don't work for the school system - just a resident that is thankful my children got an excellent education in GCPS.
It's ironic that the State is suing some counties over this when they do it all of the time (spend taxpayer's dollars to fund economic development). The University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and other state funded universities have full time economic development departments. All this is about is Nathan Deal is mad because school superintendents are calling it for what it is: A takeover of local government by the State. So now he is sicking his dogs on counties that won't step in line.
So, what's your solution? Frankly, I prefer a sales tax. That way, everybody pays their share.
Stay out of the courtroom and you have nothing to worry about.
