LA liberals not so green after all

So years ago I signed up for the LA DWP's Green Power program. I pay about 5 bucks a month more for power and they say it comes from dams and wind and shit. I just got my "annual report" on it (printed, naturally, on offwhite recycled paper). Guess how many customers are willing to pay a surcharge to grow green power:

22,860.

That's less than 2%. Granted, if giving the power company extra money isn't a luxury good, I don't know what is, but still -- it's not that much, and it can't be that much of a scam, or DWP would be promoting it more. Sheesh.
