The Link Between Distributed Generation and Efficiency

Share Button

As more distributed generation comes online, will we see more energy efficiency? The number of rooftop solar systems has increased dramatically. It makes most sense for solar users to focus on efficiency first, says Tom Hulsebosch, managing director, energy and utility practice, West Monroe Partners. This presents an opportunity for both energy efficiency companies and solar installers: They could focus on both installing solar and providing efficiency, he says.

Does this idea make sense to you? What are the pitfalls of combining solar installation with providing energy efficiency measures? Email me at [email protected] with your comments.
