There is a lot of talk about conservation, how it is supposed to save you money, etc.. I have been thinking about it, it it would appear that conservation is actually a form of prisoner's dilemma. If you are the only one conserving, and everyone else is not conserving, you get a huge benefit. If everyone starts to conserve, you get only a small benefit. The recent story about electricity rates in Toronto going up because of successful conservation efforts proves this point. I have seen other stories as well, about people who installed power generating windmills or panels, and their property tax went up because that was an improvement to their property.
