Solar Washington President David Nicol recently gave a TED X talk on the campus of WWU in Bellingham to talk about his experience working on solar microgrid projects in Alaska. Nicol describes the high financial and environmental cost of powering Alaska's cities and villages including the prevalence of diesel fuel to do so. The development of microgrids in Alaska and worldwide through the use of renewables including solar can bring electricity to billions more currently without access to clean and reliable power.
