Interesting article about what is happening in Hawaii with regards to residential solar power production. (our house has both solar hot water and PV and we've reduced our monthly bill from about $500 to $16-100 depending on the weather) The only thing the article gets terribly wrong is that there is NO coal powered electrical generation in Hawaii. Why? There is no coal. The generators are fired by imported petroleum.
As homemade electricity gains popularity, it puts new pressures on old infrastructure and cuts into electric company revenue, pitting solar companies against utilities.
