When I think of distortions to the energy market, I think of screwed up regulation. And it is usually not to the benefit of the customers.

A friend in texas pays about .06/kwh for residential power. In California, PG&E gets power at 0.03/0.04 per kwh, and resells it to residential customers for .22/.28/.49 per kwh. (you pay more when you use more, unlike any other commodity)

I hope these markets benefit from robust competition, and maybe projects like this help. Allow alternative energy, route around distribution problems and shake things up a bit.

(yeah, "throw out the old code, rewrite it")
