Your home is connected to a vast electrical power system. It’s often impossible to know precisely where your power comes from at any given time. While this system has worked well for decades, there is growing evidence that a clean energy revolution is coming soon.
I believe communities across North America have a unique opportunity to reclaim control of the generation and distribution of their power sources at the scale of the city block. There are two ways to accomplish this transition to block-scale power grids:
- Retrofit – reconfigure existing urban areas to take advantage of new technologies.
- Greenfield – build new neighborhoods hardwired for clean block-scale power.
