While the US Government draws back from innovation, the world keeps moving forward.
The Dutch Power utility, Enesco, is crafting a future based on services, not just kilowatt hours.
It is encouraging to see the forward thinking sector of American industry involved. One service Enesco provides is the sale and intallation of Tesla Powerwall home batteries.
They also install electric car charging stations.
Enesco is innovating in many ways, for example they provide deeply discounted pricing for car chargers during off-peak hours.
When you count wind, solar, a netowrk of home battery packs available to the grid, and up to the minute monitoring tols, the vision is: "When everbody is doing this, then the oil companies can quit with their production."
