Pulling the plug

"Pulling the Plug"

HomePower Magazine: "Threats of eliminating net-metering options and rising connection fees are causing some consumers to look at exercising greater energy independence."

Note that I have been advocating for a long time that utilities and municipalities set up systems so that those who have the means can install systems and feed the grid 24 hours day, using Net Metering and Time of Use Tariffs and Demand Response. In South Africa, I believe that Eskom can only supply 10% of the real demand in the economy.

Whether this happens or not, electricity users will create their own power stations and community power stations (micro-grids), so lets rather do it together as a nation, rather than apart, as individuals or a community.
