Solar Power and Distributed Power Generation

This discussion begins with Bill Queen continuing to emphasize how fragile and expensive our current electrical grid is.  It is a huge system of centralized power generation distributing electricity over long distances.  A future, more resilient system, will be many sources of power generation, on very localized scales, called a distributed power system.  Bill spends much of this discussion showing the data supporting solar voltaic generation, even here in cloudy northwest Michigan as a valuable component to the distributed power system.
