It depends on your local utility, I believe. Up here in the Pacific NW, we can choose to add $$ to our power bill for the purchase of "green" energy... mainly windpower. We're not necessarily purchasing green energy for ourselves, but really just donating to a fund that offsets the higher cost for the utility to purchase green energy and put it into the grid.

Just FYI, here's the scoop on our local green power intiative...


With that said, I don't participate in the program.

I found an interesting blog. A man used natural sunlight reflected through tubes, for lack of a better word, into his tank instead of MH lighting. He has since shut down the system due to temp fluctuations, and a couple other things, but plans to do it again, better in the future. Here is a link directly too the gallery- http://reefrancher.com/gallery/reefrancher/installation
