local grids based on renewables--tidal, wind, solar, geothermal (whatever makes most sense in that particular place)
jobs at the local power plant -- what currently prevents people from generating energy and selling it to their neighbours?
geothermal is apparently very underutilized compared to other Pacific "Ring of Fire" jurisdictions
need to improve energy efficiency too -- City Hall should be encouraging retrofitting and the switch to renewables -- more charging stations for EVs, tax incentives for retrofitting homes and making them more energy efficient
kinetic energy? Generated from roads and sidewalks?
how feasible are turbines in sewer pipes?
solar panels that also generate power during rain by harnessing kinetic energy
