What does it take to truly change a large utility? Not just cosmetic changes to branding -- but true structural changes around distributed energy deployment and customized offerings for customers.

In this week's show, we’ll talk with an industry veteran who’s trying to usher in those kinds of changes.

Ed White, vice president of New Energy Solutions at National Grid, joins the Gang to discuss the utility's new plan to integrate solar, efficiency,storage electric cars and grid automation all into one area of the business. It's not an easy task. We'll talk with White about how he hopes to pull it off.

Later in the show, we'll discuss two major Supreme Court decisions on demand response and Obama's landmark climate rule. And we'll finish with a quick discussion of the positive outcome of California's net metering debate.
