Energy and Entrepreneurship on the Green by Dean Adams Curtis

How can the Green Interstate promote economic well being for vast quantities of Americans whose local governments authorize the repurposing of their local rural routes and county roads into segments of this new/old roadway across the United States?

For starters, there are going to be a lot of people traveling the road who will be averaging ten days to cross the country. The Green Interstate will be a boon for bed and breakfasts. Many of the vehicles will be NEVs (Neighborhood Electric Vehicles) and MSEVs (Medium Speed Electric Vehicles), meaning they're going to need charging. Residents who live along the rural routes will be able to avail themselves of Federal and State tax credits that encourage solar conversion, then sell excess electricity to the countless vehicles that flow silently past.

The Green Interstate Will Revitalize Main Streets Across America

With the advent of the Green Interstate, Americans who travel it will realize something that is known in thousands of small towns across the union. There are a lot of beautiful places with a great deal going for them that have been languishing and depopulated as America rushed from a rural to an urban industrial economy.  Back in the early days of when the industrial revolution was transforming the United States from a rural economy to an urban one, Thomas Jefferson was extremely worried about how the change would impact the nation's essential character.

Designation and utilization of Green Interstate segments will re-energize small town economies throughout America. Entrepreneurs take note, there will be extraordinary opportunities along the Green Interstate. We suggest that to encourage entrepreneurships, franchises and chains (except those that already exist along the route) be gently and politely rebuffed from locating along the Green Interstate.
