Back to Solar Class, MIT

Oil is over, solar is now, says MIT. Throw money and policy at it, but lose the net metering.

That’s the street translation of the policy pathways recommended by Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s quite long The Future of Solar report (PDF). With its stated objective a recalibration of U.S. government policy, MIT’s multidisciplinary analysis found that the U.S. needs to massively accelerate the solarization of its generation capacity — by about 2,000 percent, if possible.
