  •  I've long wanted micro-financing this way (6+ / 0-)

    I would like my local bank to give me this kind of project financing to install solar panels, geothermal heating systems, buy a hybrid car, and do other eco-friendly projects around the house that have large upfront costs but save money and the planet in the long run.

    If you're not angry, you've already given up.

    •  That's Al Gore's Connie Mae idea ... (3+ / 0-)

      ... where carbon saving improvements are financed against the utility savings ... either for owners of existing homes or for builders of new ones. It would not take much of a Federal interest subsidy to get a big boost to a lot of technologies that are either already establish but need to be expanded, or else are just on the edge of adoption and need a push.

      •  Yes. I want the gov't to make such financing (0+ / 0-)

        advantaged over regular financing. And a forward-thinking gov't would do so as they will realize huge savings, and a vastly improved citizen experience, in the future from doing so.

        If you're not angry, you've already given up.
