Neighbors May Soon Help Power Each Other

The new energy paradigm beginning to rear its head is for residential renewable energy systems to sell excess energy they produce to their neighbors. Utility companies now buy excess residential energy for little or nothing so a new system is being born. Technology is reaching a certain point where residential renewable energy systems can interact with the grid in such a way that whenever there’s high demand, a shortage, or a spike it will be responded to in an effective way automatically. If the utility companies want to stay in business this technology needs to be implemented quickly because more and more households are simply going off the grid due to the increasing benefits.
