Renewable energy sources’ viability constantly grows.
Facing the traditional energy sector’s uncertain future and the decreased cost of producing renewable energy, many companies have taken to generating their own power. Manufacturers may be in an ideal position to do the same through “net metering.” Some companies, including giants such as Google and Apple, have been so successful generating their own power that they sell excess energy back to the grid. In considering such practices, manufacturers need to weigh the
costs and benefits and monitor local legislative agendas.
