I can already hear the engineering students at my U. cracking their knuckles.

If we're lucky, this process will be picked up by the next American administration as a way to supplement massive increases in wind-power infrastructure.

Skyscrapers and factory roofs can be retrofitted with high-efficiency photovoltaic cells; so long as you don't mind not being able to see out the windows, it's just an engineering problem. No doubt some facilities (vary large skyscrapers, aluminium manufacturers) would continue to buy from the grid.
