Science and technology seem to continuously move better products and innovation into the mainstream. For example, over the last decade, great efficiency improvements have been made in such technologies as wind power generators, solar photovoltaics, and geothermal heat pumps. Because of these improvements, consumer energy costs have been very stable.
