A parallel economy: Monetization of alternative energy is proposed as a way of achieving carbon neutrality & sustainability

 The local power station or microgrid issues kWhr credits based on electrical input from alternative energy. These "alternative - energy currency units" are used as the basis of a parallel economy that recycles, composts, or gasifies all waste. Different companies focus on the varied components of the sorted waste stream to form a sustainable "neomedieval" community that acts as the subsistence baseline to a communal version of Maslow's Hierarchy of needs.
