As cap and trade is implemented and tax breaks are removed from oil and natural gas, the prices will have to increase or be subsidized by the taxpayer. Either way prices are going up, so what do you do? Put in your own ground loop and use geothermal for heating/cooling. Put solar hot water system in for extra heat gain to defer costs. If you have a small stream on your property you could actually get an old swamp cooler and use the fan shroud and squirrel cage fan in the stream connected to an automotive alternator that charges deep cycle batteries which can be used to drive an inverter. Basically you pay the price one way or the other, you generate your own or pay the commodity rate.
