Slashdot has a link to a story on Yahoo News about a man who uses solar power to eliminate his home utility bills. He had to get all kind of support from the state of New Jersey, corporate sponsers, etc. The New Jersey project, which opened in October 2006 after four years of planning and building, cost around $500,000, some $225,000 of which was provided by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. The state, a leading supporter of renewable energy, aims to have 20 percent of its energy coming from renewables by 2020, and currently has the largest number of solar-power installations of any U.S. state except California. Today REnU will do it for only a $500 security deposit and guarantees today's electric rate for 25 years!
