The Idea in brief

 

We want to encourage the development and support of Renewable Electric sites distributed along the power grid to:

-         Reduce Pollution and health costs incurred from fossil fuels

-         Provide jobs

-         Reduce the impact of any terrorism

-         Reduce the need for military actions to guard oil supplies

-         Become energy independent

-         Greater availability of electric and less outages

-         Lower and more stable electrical costs

-         Promote it as a stable independent family small business

-         Broaden the tax base in rural areas

-         Help encourage research for electrical energy for the world
