Seven electric vehicle charging stations are installed in Lodi and are currently free to use. Want to charge up in your own home? The Lodi City Council approved an ordinance to offer discounted rates to drivers who charge in the off-hours.

    And the fact that the maximum Lodi electric residential rate is 33 cents kwh should ask why the rate is so terribly high, rumored to be the highest in the nation, and the reason the city of Lodi always has money to squander and waste on its good old boys and feel good projects by transferring millions of dollars of profits from LEUD, mostly from the high rates paid by the residential users to subsidize the large industrial/commercial users, who are also the biggest wasters, to pay for their pet projects while nearly every city department that is budgeted by them is crying they are too broke to do their jobs and administer services at an acceptable level. Hutchins Street Square just gets a million bucks for widening the street to merely create more parking for their overpriced events, DeBennediti , Roget and Katzakian Parks are constantly being pampered while the parks department cries it doesn't have enough budget money to repair the pool at HSS or Blakely park, but hires a part time police officer to patrol those same parks, almost all of them in the wealthy or influential areas of Lodi, while the outdated and crumbling electrical grid system in Lodi just keeps getting worse. Mr. Lechner says that if too many residential users overload the system, transformers will start blowing? Transformers seem to blow in this old antiquated system each time it rains, the wind blows good or it gets too hot or too cold. The COL knows that the infrastructure for the electric grid system here is in atrocious shape but it seems that it is taboo to talk about it due to the fact that the only fix is too costly, after having been ignored for so long by the infamous NCPA in the interests of lining their own greedy pockets, that the "movin and shakin" lifestyle of the Lodi elite would have to actually be brought under control to pay for this costly issue that people like councilman Larry Hansen, chairman of the board of the dysfunctional NCPA and the sheep he seemingly appoints as directors to LEUD and their staff, have to take a big part of the blame for using those LEUD funds for creating the present and past good old boy system that will soon start losing its dominance to a certain group of irresponsible, greedy people that always try to make it look like this is what Lodi residents really want, when in essence it is just the "movers and shakers" lining their own pockets with the help of dysfunctional, dominating council members who in turn line their own pockets. It amazes me how the wealth factors of council members and those they constantly pander to has increased drastically even during the hard economic times while many others have lost their jobs and homes, and many of those homes purchased by local investors, realtors, brokers, lenders, wealthy and those well connected who learned to play the foreclosure game and getting first pick of these foreclosures at one third or so of their highly over appraised value. Livable,lovable Lodi.

    Is it legal for this merchant to charge for someone using his electricity, or to sell it?
