For all those reasons, having a cable attached to your house seems like a long-term reality, IMO, for the majority of people.

While this is probably true, new concepts to generate electricity are constantly being refined. Not as radical as wind turbines or geothermic plants, but a step in the right direction?

"One day,every home in Germany could produce its own energy with the help of a small generator in the basement.Independent green electricity provider Lichtblick wants to join forces with carmaker Volkswagen to produce so-called mini power plants. Consumers will be able to use them to generate electricity and warmth while saving energy and helping protect the environment."
