  •  Yep. Greenhouse tax, renewable portfolio standard (5+ / 0-)

    If Congress enacted a greenhouse tax or renewable portfolio standard, the utility company would knock on your door and offer to pay you for the privilege of putting solar panels on your roof.

    Renewable portfolio standard: every power provider must generate (or buy from another provider) X% green power. Every year, X gets higher.

    Both could be done at the state level, of course, while waiting for Congress to get its GOP head out of its filibustering ass.
