Nice to see that big companies are thinking along innovative lines ! For Crane, the CEO of NRG Energy (NRG), the biggest independent producer of electricity in the U.S., conventional coal, natural gas and nuclear plants provide the bulk of his company’s $3.8 billion in revenue. But Crane foresees a day not so far off when new technologies like rooftop solar and batteries will turn the electric power industry upside down, and NRG is moving in that direction.”I think electricity today is where the telecom industry was about 1990,” Crane said in an interview with USA TODAY. “The fixed line is still out there, right? But I can’t tell you the last time I made a long-distance call from my home phone.” Source: NRG Energy sees shining future for solar
