I would like to see more expansion of clean energy options. Every house needs a roof - why not use something like integrated solar panels for the roofing to capture as much solar energy as possible. For my house, because of old growth trees (which I wouldn't want cut down) I couldn't depend on something like that exclusively, but it would help reduce the need for standard energy options.

Unfortunately I think one of the obstacles is once someone's house is setup with something like that, there's no revenue stream the way the is in deliving standard forms of energy.
