Manufacturers in Lodi are considering installing a second energy use meter at each of their plants to get a discounted rate on charging their forklift batteries, in line with a new program offered by the Lodi Electric Utility.

Rob Lechner, business development manager for the City of Lodi, said he is in talks with at least 20 businesses that could benefit from the move.

    I am simply amazed at how you can work "good old boys" into every story that comes out on this site.

    PG&E.....really!! Why don't you spend some time speaking to PG&E customers about their service. How about the neighborhood in the Bay Area that blew up due to inadequate maintenance and they lied about it. Doug, be careful what you wish for.

    Why not all businesses, not just the select few and the good old boys? This only means to me that the residential rate users, with one, if not the highest residential rates in the nation, will again be paying into the government welfare fund so these select few can save big bucks on power. If LEUD had an adequate delivery system and not the antique system from years ago with transformers blowing each time it rains or the wind blows, no one would be taxing the outdated and worn out system it now has. If those rate breaks for the select few were spent on infrastructure instead of pandering to the crybabies that use the idle threat of leaving livable, lovable Lodi if they have to pay what everyone else does, this little burg would have an adequate system. Should anything ever happen to PG&E, Lodi with their one way feed system would be at the mercy of a complete blackout. The idiots a the NCPA and LEUD are letting their greed and profiteering dominate their dulled sense of thought.
