    First, I agree. Distributed clean generation is a plus. It endures less construction of dirty centralized generation at a much greater cost. Energy companies benefit from others assisting in provifing the mandated increases in clean generation. Utility companies must allow "free share" of energy back to the grid. In AZ, these companies are attempting a monthly charge of $50 to send back excess energy into the grid. Second, I believe a healthy grid is a necessary grid. Investment in improving it so that more distributed generation can plug into a 'Smart Grid' is imperative. Third, Battery technologies only get more affordable when products reach a critical mass of production and availability. So encouraging use and proliferation is a good thing. So while I agree with most of what you've written, I would encourage battery development and increased deployment.

    Agreed, solar is definitely moving forward with huge advancements in technology, and with the introduction of new organic fuel concepts - the future of solar is very bright. The only downside is the size and cost - however both of these issues will see solutions within the next 3-5 years, guaranteed. PV panels and AIO home hubs is where we should be focusing our efforts on! Daniel Wilson http://www.energysmart.com.au/
