What's next? Mandated remote controllable thermostats so that CA can control your energy usage during a heat wave or cold snap?

Funny you should mention that. My power meter is now being read remotely. I had no choice in it being installed. My gas meter is upgradable to wireless tech when they want to. You are right, it's coming.

Or maybe we should focus on providing more power rather than legislating pocket lint savings.

This is almost impossible in California's regulatory climate anymore. My company has been involved in the process of upgrading an older power facility for the last 5 years and its been planned for more than a decade. Forget building anything new. Even solar and wind which politicians and environmentalists champion are difficult. No one wants them in their backyard.
This ridiculous route of "pocket lint savings" is unfortunately the path of least resistance in CA. Crying or Very sad I am sure it will continue. They have gone after light bulbs, televisions. Nothing is safe.
