If you generated your own power and had extra to sell back to the power companies, wouldn't that make sense for the financial stability of your household? You'd have an initial cash outlay. But those dollars would employ people in your community today. Afterwards, you reduce—or eliminate—electric, propane, and other utility bills. And if you do it right, you generated power to sell to your power company, and have a new income stream.
Everyone needs to be doing what they can to understand and participate in this ecological/financial model. We can begin by asking the power companies to institute a system for buying back power from their customers. Speak with someone at your power company about what they're doing to make adopting green energy a financially-viable option for YOU and your community.
Here is very practical action on a heart-based vision.
