People have alternatives in al most every other product they use such as choosing various modes of travel—auto, train or plane. People can use gas, oil or coal directly fortheir own energy needs or use them to generate their own electrical energy. Indeed some people today use sunlight or windpower to supplement their electrical energy needs. The point is that electrical energy
