  2. A ton of discussion on rate design.

  3. Jesse’s recent pod on rooftop solar.

  4. How the hell is rooftop solar so expensive here versus Australia?

  5. Where DERs are unfairly advantaged and disadvantaged.

  6. How we’re going to deal with load growth, transmission buildout, interconnection queues, etc.
