We had some friends over last night for pupus and drinks. In any group setting on Maui the price of energy may come up and it did. I was asked what we paid for electricity the previous month. It was quite low compared to other bills which astonished our resident Republican.
I reminded him that we had installed photo voltaic panels some time ago which cut our bill in half. The discussion turned towards PV systems and their cost. I mentioned the US had placed tariffs on Chinese manufactured PV panels to give US companies a chance in the market. The Repub stated that the President had put Chinese panels on the roof of every Federal building. I asked if, in fact, the General Services Administration had done that through a low bidder process. He replied, "Your talking out of both sides of your mouth."
Really? I asked what that meant. He couldn't explain. This must be a new Fox come back whenever they have no rational point to make.
