Why are we yelling at utilities, and not their short-sighted regulators?

Great article about the misplaced frustration consumers, renewable energy companies and activists direct toward government regulated energy monopolies.  Oh, the utilities are completely worthy of all the scorn and derision heaped on them.  But they are doing what they’ve always done – maximizing shareholder values.   It’s the inept, clueless, short-sighted, industry pandering regulators who are most deserving of all the vitriol.
