    People still build new capacity because of the need to replace obsolete capacity and because 0.7% of a large number is still not zero.  If you had a notion of how rate cases are constructed you'd know that in fact the move to DG as well as the efficiency measure driving a lot of this pattern do replace the need for additional generation.  In fact regulators often require utilities to promote efficiency to forestall the need for expensive (for ratepayers) additional generation capacity.  So, yes, in the real world it is definitely a cost saved to consumers.  

    Besides, it seems that people who use the grid leas because theyve installed solar should pay less for it.  Let the people who are using it 24x7 pay for it

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.
