Ahh, so it raises utility costs for everyone, and that's where the funding comes from...

So... socialist? You want something to better society and everyone pays for it? (Mostly tongue-in-cheek)

I can agree with the idea a bit more now that I know where that missing money is coming from. If nothing else, it's a great way to encourage adoption.

Nah, I freely admit to having certain socialist tendencies. We all take great liberties with the benefits society provides, so I don't really understand why we all so readily balk at having to give back. In fact, duties to society played easily as much a role in the development of my ethics as did morality (by my definitions of ethics/morality, see less Christian America topic).

But yeah, there is a slight increase for everyone and it certainly encourages people to get involved. But then, when it comes to increasing reliance on renewable energy that we control, I'm not sure that making that the more profitable option for people is really such a bad thing. Besides, once you get on board, it ends up being cheaper for you, even with the increased cost of the utilities (because of the energy you sell).

Fair enough - my point was if you want it for free, you gotta make it yourself.
