The inevitable outcome of Marxism in all of it's guises.
Actually, this proposal is out-and-out FASCISM. Marxism would involve the state taking the utilities over and running them directly into the ground.
When cowardly politicians try that they usually shy of actually being in a position where they could be blamed for any outcomes, so they stop at the safest waystation along the way: Fascism, where they can tell the utility bosses what to do and then blame them when it all goes to disaster.
Isn't politics fun?

Actually, they already do that. Power plants are told when to run, when to stop operations, & how much power to produce. If they don't produce the amount required, they are fined - and have to explain why. If they have an unplanned outage, they have to explain what happened and why. And all to an outside agency! They have a strangehold on power plants. It's much cheaper to produce electricity outside the state.
