This has always been about vested interest.

Even if you don’t believe in climate change there is good reason to invest in solar and wind based on health effects of particulates.

The best thing would be government schemes to get people to invest in there own power generation with supplemental energy from a central source when needed.

Problem is it doesn’t make for as profitable business model.

The Industrial Age worked on a paradigm of mass production and distributed consumption.

The technological age is more based on distributed production and consumption and business models are struggling to adapt.

Exactly. We can put the windmills where they are the most effective and least disturbing to the environment. And use the energy somewhere else where it is needed. I don't see why would be this policy a struggle.
