I had, what I could only describe as a vision. In this vision, I saw a community with everything you could need in a community. Homes, schools, stores, libraries, police and fire stations, medical facilities and anything else you could think of. The difference between this and other communities is that this community was totally self sufficient as far as their energy was concerned. Every home and business was powered by solar panel and/or wind turbine. All of them were hooked up together for shared energy and, also, to power the public buildings like town hall, the hospital and others. There were no utility poles because all the wiring was underground.One reason to hook them all together is so that when someones equipment has to be shut down for maintenance or repair they won't have to go without power. And when you add that to much reduced property taxes, everyone wouldn't be paying a power bill every month. Everyone benefits.
Does this sound like a good idea to you? I just want to find out if my imagination is working, or am I just crazy?
