@Dan, with all due respect, people are smart enough to self-enforce their power use -- it's called "paying your bill". If your bill gets too high, you reduce your use to match your desired expense for power. You don't need the Power Police to monitor your life.
As to solar and wind, since they are intermittent, unreliable, weather-dependent and have a low capacity factor they require some sort of reliable back-up. That normally is supplied by a coal or natural gas-fired plant. No coal plants are shut down due to an increase in solar or wind generation.
Get up to speed with nuclear power plants that consume used nuclear fuel - Integral Fast Reactor or Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR) www.energyfromthorium.com. With uranium, just don't eat it and you'll be fine.
