  •  distributed power creation is the future: (9+ / 0-)

    each house or building generating at least a part of its own power via solar, wind, etc. is much more efficient than massive plants and the losses that occur through power lines over long distances.

    Not only that, "power" in a real sense is redistributed as well:  individuals have more control over their lives, rather than central "power" brokers.  Both in an electricity sense and in a political/economic sense, having your own power generation - at least in part - is a very good thing.
