The historic model for New England's grid is breaking down as climate takes center stage, and as solar, wind, and smarter energy management upend the energy market. Acadia Center comments on this trend in a three-part opinion series for CommonWealth Magazine. Part I of the series focuses on controversial proposals to subsidize large natural gas pipelines through the region. Part II explores how rooftop solar and smart energy management are transforming the energy system and upending the centralized utility model. Part III describes the near-term legislative opportunity to bring online large-scale clean energy sources that will facilitate achievement of Massachusetts’ climate commitments, stabilize prices, and continue the transition to a clean energy system.
