Distributed Generation: Building a Better Energy System

Posted by David Blittersdorf on December 20, 2016

As our world relies increasingly on renewable energy, we’re facing a new challenge: the way we generate and distribute that energy. Our current system is based on a model of inefficient centralized generation, or the large-scale generation of electricity at centralized facilities, a model that is built around fossil fuel and nuclear power plants. As we move towards a clean energy future, we need to change that model and build a system based on distributed energy resources (DER), a variety of technologies that generate electricity at or near where it will be used.

Posted by AllEarth Renewables on April 5, 2016

One of the biggest obstacles preventing people from going solar is the upfront cost, which is often significant and can be prohibitive to those who can't afford it. AllEarth has long recognized the need for alternative solar solutions for these customers: when we first began selling trackers, it was almost exclusively as part of a statewide power purchase agreement (PPA) program, through which we installed over 660 trackers and helped hundreds of Vermonters go solar by following the sun. It was the success of this early program that has inspired us to launch a brand new PPA program for the state of Vermont.
