Do you know why gas prices are climbing? Because they weren't making enough money, production was booming, refineries were cranking out refined oil and (as a byproduct) gas like crazy, and so they decided together to decrease production, in order to push the price of oil back up. This is like TV manufacturers deciding that TV's are getting too cheap, so to make more money, they decrease the available inventory of TVs available in stores...

The Power Companies are going to do the same. They are not going to voluntarily go out of business.

They are not going to voluntarily compete. There is also no competition for the physical grid. Here they drive around all new trucks every year, and never want for a single thing that their captive customers can't buy for them.
