Yep. I guess, anyone capable of producing their own energy is "competition". I'm talking in financial terms. They always say, all of this "green" energy will save people so much money. BS. Every light in our home is either LED (majority) or flourescent/CFL, and our electric bill hasn't budged. We've tried/done just about every "energy saving" method (re-insullation/weather-proofing, etc...), and nothing. The ONLY people benifiting financially from "green/renewable energy" are the ones who manufacture/sell the equipment/technology. The bottom line is, it's a business, and business make money. Any "savings" promissed to their customers, will be offset (made back) in one way, or another.
