In the foreseeable future, households will participate in the voluntary Challenge for a variety of reasons.  In a plausible future, almost all households will reduce energy use, most unaware of the Challenge, for the same single reason:  politics and the prices of external energies (fuels, electrons) will have moved many technical solutions well beyond affordability.

Whatever Challenge participants can learn, discover and share in the meantime regarding personal and community solutions will become more valuable than we can imagine where we stand today.
