Democratizing the Electricity System: A Vote for Local Solar

Date: 22 Nov 2011 | posted in: Energy, Energy Self Reliant States | 1 Facebooktwitterredditmail

This is a presentation by John Farrell to the MDV-SEIA Solar Energy Focus conference in Washington, DC.  In it, I discuss the transformation in the electricity system being wrought by clean energy sources, the winning economies of local solar power, how the drawbacks of solar are technically surmountable, and how public policy must change to smooth the path for more energy self-reliance with solar power.
