Yes stand-by power is also something the tree huggers and folks in DC can't understand. To be simple the power grid is real time, anytime you turn on a light or make any other demand on the power grid capacity must be available somewhere to meet that demand. Wind can be spotty so we have to keep carbon dioxide spewing fossil fuel burning plants running at an idle to be ready to grab the load if the wind dies off or to meet peak demands as people turn things on. For those of you that don't do commercial power in my buildings the KWH charge is less than half my power bill the other half is system demand, customer demand, meter charges and taxes and other government fees. For the demand charges I pay a per kilowatt fee for the Highest demand I had during the billing period. In the Jail that was usually about 280 KW, I pay another demand charge on the highest 15 Minute peak period over the last year, at the jail one year that was 350 KW that fee is often $10-$14 a KW so for that ONE 350 KW peak I paid roughly $3,500 a month for the next year in fees the extra 70 KW over my monthly demand was about $700 a month, or to turn on all the AC units and the kitchen equipment at once during that one period cost the taxpayers $8,400.
