Yeah, this guy Paul Murphy is like all the other crybaby mouth pieces for the power utilities. Wah it will cost the "traditional" customer more money. All the Paul Murphy's don't mention the avoided costs of the wide spread use of solar PV. The Utility doesn't have to buy more expensive power on the spot market during peak use times of the day. The Utility doesn't have to spend money on the private solar PV system upkeep and maintenance. The Utility doesn't have to spend money on man hours filing EIRs, legal briefs, buy property to build more power plants and going to court to defend right of way law suits when new power corridors have to be built. The majority of power Utilities have an old and outdated business model. Centralized power generation with a distribution grid. What is needed is the distributed generation of power with regional power storage. If the likes of Tesla or the Chinese company BYD build mega battery plants, the price per KWh of storage will come down. When it gets to around $100 KWh private solar PV system owners will have the option of storing their power in their own battery system. They will not need to send power back into the grid. What excuse will the Utility have then?
