Where Chicago gets its power
Leaving all the operational safety and environmental impact considerations for our major electricity sources aside, it's just not a great idea to have so much of generation capacity confined to such a small number of sources. Maybe one of the best arguments for growing a distributed generation network of small solar systems is the redundancy it provides us all. Even those of us in a neighborhood who don't have a solar system on our own roof benefit from the system on our neighbor's roof.
So what's the trigger that will get us started on this better path?
