    The oil, coal and gas industries operate with large subsidies and tax credits you'll never see.
    Why is that OK, but investing in clean technology NOT?

    I am also concerned about the large number of tax credits and deductions that large Utah families get, while they increase the pressure on our natural resources, school systems and taxpayer-funded infrastructure.

    I don't have a single problem for the house getting tax credits and subsidies to get to an affordable level. Research and development of an industry that will benefit the whole of society is a good thing. If part of my taxes can help do that then I am grateful to do it. As the cost is recouped by the developers and the cost of the equipment and installation goes down then the subsidies also drop. Win-win for everyone. Especially those who live on the same planet and breath the same air. Only a real mean-spirited and selfish Tea-partier would not want such a good thing for our society. I always try to remember that we are all in this together.

    This really is exciting.

    "$350,000 to $400,000 range"

    My only concern is how much in tax payer (or debt funded) subsidies/credits are required to get the cost down into that range?
