Solar panels on our houses and electric cars are great ideas, but they can be made more practical with key upgrades to our electrical infrastructure. Dr. Eric Williams, Associate Professor of Sustainability at the Rochester Institute of Technology, talks to us today about Elon Musk’s recent announcement of home battery banks, and how our power system needs to change to accommodate solar and wind energy technology. In our second half, we’ll have a wide-ranging discussion about new discoveries in quantum physics.
