Control system-Totaly supply and demand based. Everybody sets up controllers with rules like if price goes up over 7/kwh, switch to flywheel. Everybody gets flywheels to store power when the price - set by second to second supply and demand - goes low enough for them to store some for later. When the price goes up on the microgrid, you can even sell your stored power back to it and make some $$$ on the transfer.


Also, you set it up so that people can see whether they're making or losing money, which may be a powerful enough motivator to get people to turn off enough lights to get the meter to run backwards.



Anyone thought about DC in this sort of system?
