Why Going Local Makes Sense for the Clean Energy Transition | Institute for Local Self-Reliance


Utility scale solar, advocated by Mr Cicala, does cost less than rooftop solar (and most fossil fuel options, as well), but it’s also worth less to the electric grid, as I wrote in July 2015.

The long-distance, utility-scale grid Mr Cicala envisions also ignores the way in which smart grid innovations are shrinking the value of a big grid.

Thanks. God bless.
