There is one current example could show realistic path for renewable energy future for everyone. In Germany a village called Wildpoldsried produces 321% more energy than it needs – and it’s generating 4.0 million Euro (US $5.7 million) in annual revenue by selling it back to the national grid:

And this above example belongs to even colder solar zone of the earth considering this map:
The thing is this few months old news is especially ignored by big news medias. Well with obvious reasons oil power I guess.

For the first half of 2011 Solar power now constitutes 3.5% of total electricity supply in germany according to Association of German Energy Suppliers (BDEW).

Solar panels have come a long way in the last 40 years since I graduated from college. The price has come way down and the power output has increased several fold.

My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.
