The Virtual Power Plant -- That's Us! -- Lowers Fossil Fuel Use

Residential solar panels and battery backups are becoming more and more popular as efficiency rises and costs sink.

This explosion in distributed solar makes a new idea possible: virtual power plants, or a smart network of individual solar panels that can act like a big power plant when electricity is needed most.

And as extreme weather and fires threaten many communities, this idea is arriving in the nick of time. What's not to like about a great idea when Sim City's used to illustrate, right?
