      How Hawaii Has Empowered Energy Storage and Forever Changed the U.S. Solar Industry

      Over the past two years, Hawaii has been ground zero of a historic battle between solar and utilities. With solar penetration at a level unseen in the rest of the country – an estimated 12 percent of all homes – Hawaiian utilities are facing unprecedented challenges in figuring out how to integrate such a large quantity of renewables into their existing electricity grid, and how to get customers to pay for it. Given residential solar’s exponential growth across the U.S., the new technologies, business models and regulations that emerge from Hawaii’s experience are seen by many as a preview of what’s to come elsewhere.
