Devin Hartman cited in Institute for Local Self-Reliance:

Some power companies have even lobbied the federal government to provide a backdoor subsidy by rewarding power plants with on-site fuel storage (a backhanded swipe at wind and solar that could misfire as these systems add battery storage). The competitive threat also applies to new power plants, where the rapidly falling costs of distributed energy make slow-to-build, long-term investments very risky.
