Green technology can be profitable, but it needs to be made practical. If I have a budget and see if I buy this expensive solar setup I'll get a return about five years or more from now then that just isn't an attractive option to most people. They want savings now, not later. I see news all the time about breakthroughs in making solar energy cheaper and more efficient but I've yet to actually see prices on solar drop when I'm looking to buy equipment for a remote setup. I don't agree with the government taking more money from people to prop up a business who's business plan obviously didn't measure up or they wouldn't need the help to begin with. If you want people to be green then make it economically practical for them to be so. If people don't have the extra income to go green is it fair to beat them with a stick saying they have too and taking more of their income so the government can give it to whoever is the most politically correct at the time?
