So you want to get rid of heating oil.....

...and replace it with electrical resistance heating? Because that's what you'd be doing. Heat pumps can't adequately heat houses in the area of the country where oil is a dominant source of heat. Passive solar is useless under an overcast New England Winter sky.

And if that's what you want to do, do you have any idea how much that will cost the average homeowner? The conversion would be a total nighmare and the ongoing electric bills (somebody has to pay for those wind turbines) would make the average homeowner politely decline your offer.

So take it from a guy who knows the energy markets and enjoys a fantastic lifestyle because of oil, natural gas, and coal, you people live in some dream world where the term "cost-benefit analysis" simply doesn't exist.

You might want to take a few business classes while you're saving the world.
