Co-sponsored by: MIT Club of Northern California

Rooftop solar is transitioning rapidly to full solar + storage + control systems (microgrids), driven by plummeting storage costs, rebates, TOU rates and blackout protection.

How are utilities, incumbent and new ones, taking advantage of lower equipment costs?
What policies do we need to streamline this transition and reduce costs?
What software and communications capabilities are needed to interface with the grid?
What is the potential for US manufacturing or should the US concentrate on deployment?
