This is a presentation by John Farrell to the MDV-SEIA Solar Energy Focus conference in Washington, DC.  In it, I discuss the transformation in the electricity system being wrought by clean energy sources, the winning economies of local solar power, how the drawbacks of solar are technically surmountable, and how public policy must change to smooth the path for more energy self-reliance with solar power.

    This is a great powerpoint! Wish we had the presenter’s notes. We are so close to getting a policy adopted by our REA. What would it take to bring you to Colorado to give this presentation to the board?
