  • C’mon folks, be realistic. As long as there is no fundamental economics reason, these things won’t happen. These new products based on ‘green concept/green energy’ will be a lot more expensive than current products. There is a lot of hypes that companies created, either because their products markets have reached saturation point or they are facing increasing energy (consumption) cost. That’s why they are looking for alternative energy sources as well as alternative products. There’s nothing wrong with that. But, these alternative energies won’t come in cheap. Expensive alternative energy will only drive to expensive products. Companies may charge a bit higher on these products, citing it helps the environment!! To get them cheaper, we need ‘economy of scales’ by having more demand for these products with more suppliers producing these. At least, it is in the right direction, but it’s a still long way to go to realize its full potential. We also have to anticipate occasional hiccup along the way.
