Hey tell me about your home Photovoltaic and or water heater system. I saw a presentation about solar energy the other day and I was very impressed. Sure it's expensive, but over the years it's cheaper than paying the utilities! If you plan on being in your home for 10 years or more, you can take out a 2nd mortgage to pay for the Solar system, your monthly payment replaces (for the most part) your utility bill, and eventually just goes away! Very compelling.
