I got a letter from my natural gas utility saying they are exceeding their goals to transition to renewable energy, and they solicited feedback on that "accomplishment".

I obliged by telling them their only duty is to safely deliver natural gas as affordably as possible to their customers, and that if we wanted alternative energy, we would get alternative energy elsewhere. If our bill increases even 1 cent because of the "accomplishment", they are in violation of their responsibility to deliver affordable energy to their customers.

Perhaps that's how we all transition to alternatives; the utilities drive prices up so high that it simply becomes cheaper to make your own power.
