. . . . . . United Kingdom,
. . . . . . Netherlands,
. . . . . . Switzerland, and
. . . . . . Czech Republic
. . . already encourage plug and play solar.
There is no valid technical reason,
. . . we should not follow the trends,
. . . in other advanced industrialized nations, and
. . . allow plug and play solar in America.
A blanket federal U.S. electrical regulation,
. . . may allow plug and play solar in the future.
The total potential U.S. market for plug and play solar is over
. . . 57 gigawatts (GW), equivalent to about
. . . 57 large coal, or nuclear plants, could save
. . . $13 billion/year in cost savings!
