Why Owning Your Own Power Plant Might Not Be Crazy


Could a “personal power plant” be your next major home appliance?
  ;D

The (Personal) Power Plants of the Future 

When many people think of power plants they think of large industrial facilities with heavy machinery—hot, loud, and dirty. While this is an accurate description of many existing power plants, including those that I once operated, the personal power plants of the future will be much different.

Quiet, clean, and contained, your solar-plus-battery home energy system will be nearly indistinguishable from the refrigerator, chest freezer, or furnace in your basement—an essentially silent “box” that does something for you and your home, except this one will be connected to solar panels on your roof. In fact, as property developers and energy service companies become more familiar with these systems, they will most likely become integrated with the other systems in your home, leveraging the waste heat produced by your battery to help heat your home and provide other services.

To wit, personal power plants might be ready for consumer primetime   , just like a wave of other examples where consumers switched from a centralized and/or outsourced service to providing it for themselves with appliances:

•The switch from ice block delivery service to refrigerators and freezers

•The rise of the swanky home theater system while large movie theaters have seen flat or even slowly declining ticket sales

•The shift from delivery of firewood or district heating systems to the in-home furnace

•The similar shift later in the 20th century to common in-home air conditioning units

•The television’s “promotion” from a one-per-household appliance around which the whole family gathered to a point today where Americans on average have as many TVs as people per household, with a third of homes boasting four or more TVs.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
