Reduce Barriers to Entry for Clean Energy

Given the budget crisis, we can only afford initiative that don't cost a dime so here's one that will make money for the government. Stop all subsidies and tax preferences for conventional energy supplied by existing commercial energy companies. That will generate revenue for the government, reducing the deficit, while marginally raising the cost of conventional energy and reducing the gap between it and renewables. A small step in the right direction.
