Renewable energy is always going to be the last item on the list. The reason is quite simple. Say you installed an expensive Solar PV system on your home with the hope of wiping out your power bill entirely. Assuming you've been successful, what if the following year you have an air conditioner go out, and it was 30 years old? Well, the new HVAC system will be dramatically more efficient than the old one, and have a major impact in the amount of energy you use. Conservatively, it could be 20% or more. Now suddenly that Solar PV system that you bought is 20% larger than it needs to be. There is no way to justify selling power back to PG&E, as it is always going to be at a significant loss.
