|Amid the hullabaloo over government-chartered mortgage giants derailing the green financing program known as Property Assessed Clean Energy, or PACE, the march toward distributed generation of renewable energy -- that is, generating electricity from decentralized sources such as rooftop solar panels or backyard wind turbines -- continues.
Case in point: The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) announced Wednesday that it had awarded contracts to San Francisco's Recurrent Energy to install 60 megawatts' worth of solar panels in the region surrounding California's state capital.
I don't live in Sacramento metro area, yet I still get service from SMUD. Really cool too. A hellva lot better then PG&E. Ever since I saw Erin Brockovich, as far as I'm concerned, PG&E can fall off the planet!!
