The recently passed Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 also included important provisions on energy, under the Energy Improvement and Extension Act.

However, some energy providers don't need Congressional intervention or tax incentives to spur good old American entrepreneurialism. The capture of natural methane gas emitted from landfills for conversion to energy exemplifies the saying "making lemonade from lemons." And this concept is not something that is still on the drawing board. There are already projects in place across Tennessee.
