Electricity unbelievably increased 52%. Looking at the supply structure gives an explanation. Ours is the most convoluted inexplicable supply chain imaginable. Ameren only brokers and passes along costs to a captive market—we peons. A perfect model for Illinois govt to manipulate this market and blame others. Ameren uses the grid but it belongs to others. As does power generation. And of course, the cost rise is the fault of their cost increases for fossil fuel caused by Ukraine war. Not because Biden cancelled Keystone pipeline, public land drilling, cancelled off-shore oil, fracking and increased regulations closing nuclear, coal and gas fired power plants. Now he says it is the war’s fault. Did Ukraine cause the baby formula debacle? No these are examples of Biden and bureaucracy working to make themselves important but miss crises and results of runaway govt regulations they perpetrate.
