- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I subscribe to the Blue Sky program - and I recently install a 2.6 KV solar cell system. I'm concerned that we are searching for solutions that rely on large installations - need to consider promoting ditributed generation approaches. My questions are: As I understand it, Germany has a policy that the power companies are required to purchase power at retail rates from small (home owner) solar installations. That's produced numerous distributed systems. Why not in the US? Second, my system is producing carbon free power, and I get a report on the amount. It would make sense that I should be able to participate in "selling" carbon offsets.
