      I just entered my Canadian postal code and it took it fine.  Asked this question: "The governments of Canada and Ontario (where I live) provide a $7,000 subsidy between them to anyone who puts in a geothermal heating/cooling system--without which I'd never be able to afford the system I now have. Is the USA going to do the same?"  Freep that sucker!

      •  Cool :) Thanks for letting me know :) (2+ / 0-)

      •  I saw your question (0+ / 0-)

        but voted no. :(

        Just to clarify, I voted against ANYONE who specifically asked about one type of energy without then broadening the question to something along the lines of "will this and similar initiatives to encourage more renewable energy be a major part of your energy policy." I don't believe in the government picking winners, not when so many of these technologies are so young, and going along only with those that we are familiar with or came out first might miss more promising stuff coming down the pipeline. I thing geothermal is a viable technology,I don't know that I'd be willing to subsidize it specifically when a carbon/gas tax would be even more effective at driving innovation and encouraging new green investments.
