Davis runs into trouble, as predicted

Last year, I argued that Davis, California, should not replace its excellent tariff design with one that went "easy on lawns," due to the risk that conservation messages would be muddied and finances destabilized.

Well, their new tariffs are, indeed, causing the utility financial and political problems.

Sad, but maybe an opportunity for them to adopt a better system?
