This from the article:

“A combination of solar power, wind, and currently available storage technologies could fill 99.9 percent of a large power grid's needs by 2030, according to a new study out of the University of Delaware and Delaware Technical Community College. The researchers found that a very large power grid could conceivably be run almost entirely on renewable energy, with fossil fuel backup for about a tenth of a percent of the power consumed in total.”

We need to move away from the Grid and move toward a system where each and every building has its own source of power production
