"Despite these megaprojects, Crane ultimately sees no future for high-voltage transmission lines. "It's idiotic to put panels in the desert and transmit electricity to cities." Noting that there are 130 million wooden utility poles across the U.S., Crane wryly observed, "The 21st century economy should not be based on wooden poles." Crane envisions a distributed solar future, whether it's through rooftop or parking lot installations, observing that solar photovoltaic (PV) technology downsizes well."

I'm betting there are a lot of CEOs from other energy companies that would like to shut this guy up. This guy Crane just may be the driving force that changes the electric industry from a centralized generation system to a distributed generation system with smaller grids that have storage facilities along the smaller grid structures. That would be a step away from the status quo of generation and delivery, to a new business model of distributed generation that the utility then "stores" and delivers when demanded by the customer base.
