Roof Top Net Metering compared with Centralised IPP's (Independent Power Producers)

Just a reminder that it is even cheaper to allow Net Metering on private roof tops as no government Capex is required and government only pays for the net electricity fed into the grid, and there are no transmission line losses, and local transformers and distribution equipment is used less so lasts longer and therefore has less maintenance costs; as against centralised IPPs transmitting Renewable Energy over long distances and requiring large Capex and not reducing equipment maintenance costs.
