Description:  “Distributed electricity generation (local, decentralized energy production) has the potential to radically alter America’s energy landscape. Our current energy mix is dominated by large, remote, centralized power facilities such as nuclear, gas, and coal-fired power plants, as well as massive wind farms and transmission infrastructure. Today, improved technologies, environmental and economic concerns, and a recognition of the vulnerabilities in large centralized power production make distributed generation coupled with efficiency upgrades a viable and, in fact, preferable alternative. Every properly situated building, parking lot, and
brownfield (disused, contaminated land) in our communities can potentially become a producer of energy.”
