Renewable Energy

Challenge

Incentives for on-site power generation vary from location to location, often dictated by the local energy provider.

Opportunity & Response

Advocating for policies that incentivize on-site energy generation can greatly decrease the cost for installing energy generation systems. For example, excess energy generated by photovoltaic (PV) panels, also known as solar panels, can either be sent back to the energy grid, or stored in batteries. Energy providers that offer bi-directional meters, which allows excess power to flow to the grid, greatly reduce system costs to the homeowner.
