    with the transfer of energy from an owner to a customer - if I understand, this is how Dominion is able to interfere - couldn't there be some end-run solution by having institutional customers band together to collectively own their systems?  In other words, rather than buying the power, they buy a share of ownership that corresponds to the value of the power covered by a supply contract?  Or something like that.

    Republicans would rather live in shit than be seen working a shovel.

      the problem lies in that our Congress, in its infinite wisdom, has located our "National Energy Policy" (such as it is) in the tax code. Non-profits can't take advantage of the incentives because they are all tax based. Universities such as Washington and Lee need to partner with private companies who can use the tax credits in order to access the incentives.
