Consumer Buying and Green Energy

From the Paper:

""Going Green" in any industry has its advantages. For instance, special financing and grants are available to encourage the use of sustainable energy sources. For instance, in the San Francisco Bay area a bond is available for green building construction (East Bay EDA). California is a leader in the development of programs to help encourage green development in industry. For instance, companies can take advantage of tax incentives, credit for research and development, and assistance with employee training (East Bay EDA). These incentives add to the economic advantages of going green for an industry. However, these incentives are not the key driving factors behind the green movement in industry."
