We just got wind of a major new oil industry campaign to tear down California’s clean energy rules, but we’re thinking these guys are going to be outflanked by the shockingly rapid growth of the energy storage sector.

If you’re new to the topic, it may come as somewhat of a shock to see Navy and solar energy in the same sentence.
