Over Half of Germany's Renewable Energy Owned By Citizens & Farmers, Not Utility Companies
[link to www.treehugger.com]

Germany's promotion of renewable energy rightly gets singled out for its effectiveness, most often by me as an example of how to do things well versus the fits and starts method of promotion common in the US. Over at Wind-Works, Paul Gipe points out another interesting facet of the German renewable energy saga: 51% of all renewable energy in Germany is owned by individual citizens or farms, totaling $100 billion worth of private investment in clean energy.

If there is a blackout like that, nobody has electricity, also not the ones who pay less cos they have solar.
But it is not so difficult to store some energy for when it is not sunny. It is pretty easy.

Just look at the Stuttgart 21 terrorists. They lost a democratic vote and yet they continue to disrupt the process.

Eco-terrorism.

I know, but the grid has a pretty good uptime. When was the last time there was a blackout?
But I agree that it wouldn't be bad to locally store some electricity, I'm all for decentralizing solutions.
