Can we put a small tax on energy usage that would go to funding renewable energy sources?

    We can, but it is unlikely that it would pass. There is a very vocal minority in the United States that opposes most, if not all, tax raises, I am talking about Republicans. I would like to believe that this tax would be easier to pass than most, but the majority of the public also opposes raising taxes, especially on something they use (electricity).

    The other thing to consider is whether it would be a federal tax raise or a statewide one. In some states, like California, it takes a 2/3 majority to pass tax measures, this would make it even more difficult to pass.
