   I am struck by the articles line, "That means an average yield of about 100 megawatts, enough to supply about a quarter of the Tri-Cities' power needs".  Perhaps those who are pushing for conservation aren't completely out of line after all...  I for one am not too happy with Compact Fluorescent (CF) light bulbs, they don't last nearly as long as they are supposed to last and they are too expensive.  However, perhaps through the use of emerging technologies we can curb our energy usage.  A good example is the use of the newer flat panel monitors, LCD?, instead of Cathode Ray Tubes.  The new monitors use about a quarter of the energy of the old monitors and no doubt by converting to the new monitors it helps to lower the cooling needs for large office buildings.  We need to use our limited resources as wisely as possible.  This means that we need "real" leadership to get people to voluntarily conserve energy.
