Green Peace has been advocating decentralised power co-generation for quite some time, especially in the cooler region of the world. A small power station among cities where the 'waste' heat can also be used as a heating sources for buildings nearby and the electric power generated is used locally as well.
It is great to see support coming to USA too. As noted, the original centralised power system was designed for costly generators and cheap grid network. The problem has reversed as the reliability of the generators are better than the grid. There are 207 benefits of small generators.
