Government support of residential alternative energy applications can come in different forms. There are tax credits available if you use residential green energy, such as wind or solar energy, and you are helping preserve the earth and environment at the same time. Government support for residential alternative energy waxes and wanes, depending on who is president. While George W. Bush wass president, green alternative energy was not a high priority, but what do you expect from someone who has family money in oil? The new president, Barack Obama, has already pledged to make green residential energy and green alternative energy a high priority. This means more support from the government, in the form of tax credits and government subsidies. State governments are also doing their part to help make green alternative energy, like solar power electricity, become more widely used. This is critical to get America weaned off the foreign oil that we are so dependent on. Residential alternative energy applications will play a big part in domestically produced energy that is both eco-friendly and also effective.
Residential alternative energy still needs government support to make it cost effective and widely implemented. This will not always be true though, and at some point technology is going to be able to increase the effectiveness of energy generation from green power sources and lower the cost to the point that wind and solar energy, and other alternative green energy sources, will be much cheaper than oil or gas. With all the tax credits and government support that residential green energy receives, these green technologies are already cost effective.
