I am distressed by the roadblocks private citizens encounter when they try to invest in and use solar/wind energy in the state of VA. It's not only a financial issue, it is an effort to move into a less polluted future to preserve the planet for future generations. There should be incentives to invest in green technology, at all levels, not more obstacles. I grew up in coal country and both my grandfather and father worked in the mines. There is no such thing as "clean coal". I moved to VA because of the clean water and clean air quality. I want to see VA continue to offer these clean resources and not cave to the fast buck. It is a smart investment to develop and patent clean/green technology. Make the profits in selling that technology to other places.
