Skinny Grids: LEDs Harness More Distributed Energy for Less

Energy efficiency, not the falling price of solar, has done the heavy lifting when it comes to improving the economics of distributed clean energy for the poor. LEDs' reduced demand for energy brings down the size, and therefore the cost, of everything in a system, from solar panel to battery. Imagine if we took this lesson -- energy efficiency unlocks distributed energy for the poor -- and applied it to rural electrification as a whole?
