Need more windfarms.

It's about time. 

The govt. can use whatever excuse they want to crack down on this, in this case "climate", but it is not right that a small group of people trying to get rich off cryptocurrency can consume such a large amount of precious energy resources with no penalty.

I sold my old 1080ti on eBay the other day in 15 mins.  I got flooded with emails from crypto kids asking about it

Wait till the EVs get going.

This (and crypto) seems like something easily solved with Time of Day pricing.

I think that an easy solution to this is to have consumption-based rates.  Once someone exceeds a certain number of KWH/month, the rate doubles, and then if another threshold is reached, it triples.

I'm a big proponent of conservation as opposed to wholesale revamping of our energy systems by 2035 like some suggest, so making people pay more for consuming more makes sense to me.
