Patrick O'Grady of the Phoenix Business Journal article says "Thatís wreaking havoc with utilities because it messes up their business model of relying on new customers and higher rates. As rates go higher, people will just adopt a cheaper technology. Growth requires more investment to cover, and pushes costs higher as well. See the sentence before on what happens when rates go higher."

This is why APS and SRP are having fits over home and business owners having their own distributed source of peak power generation. Their sorry assed business models are failing and people are not buying into the "price of doing business" excuse anymore. The utilities are going to have to give more than lip service to their woes in the business world or get run over by those with the vision to make it all work in todays world. Energy storage is the future, those who fail to adopt the technology sooner than later will be absorbed by those utilities that are willing to add storage to their business model.
