Duncan Callaway collaborates and comments on the topic of California’s new solar policies in the Utility Dive article. Distributed solar policies may be preventing us from maximizing our resources in the expansion of clean energy.

“We must continue to think critically about the societal value that distributed solar can bring, and recognize the opportunities we miss by imposing unnecessary limitations. Community solar can make moot the controversies surrounding behind-the-meter solar and enable new approaches that can maximize societal value for all Californians.”
