Questioning Value of Large Utility Renewable Systems
Business models have traditionally had the mind set of “the bigger – the better” and so it goes. Of course the utilities think that really giant renewable systems make sense. That way they maintain control of electricity & the profits. What our electric infrastructure will look like in 100 years no body knows. However what is clear is that we will need a variety of renewable systems for the foreseeable future. Let’s face it, in some highly congested urban areas microgrids, residential systems are not workable right now. But for the suburbs & rural areas small systems make the most sense. This article questions the value of utilities developing large scale renewable projects. I did not agree with it’s basic premise. But please read this yourself!
