CA Backpedals on Thermostat Control...For Now

The California Energy Commission has, at least for the present, removed the proposed building code requirement that future construction include thermostats which can be programmed by the state government.

The folks at Patterico's site suspect this isn't the end of the idea, and I think they're right.

As Joseph Somsel writes in a comment, "The root problem is the state’s policy of 'Conservation First'" rather than "energy adequacy."

Bradley J. Fikes raises more questions at The Festering Swamp.
