The money to be made by the grid is a major factor.
At TEDx Houston in June 2011 one of the speakers was advocating for finding a way for renewable energy to be part of the grid.
My thought at the time was this was not an altruistic idea, but rather a way to insure that big money could continue to make money distributing energy.

these electric utilities are all, inside their strategic huddles, dreading the day, not too far off, when home PV systems will be so economic that many millions will want them on their roofs. imagine, if 50% of all houses had them, the amount of total demand for electric util (retail providers) basic product (electricity) will drop by a huge percent. it really makes sense for the entire country, entire world, to have PV units on the roof, but remember the vested interests !!
also remember in Texas, most Texans believe it is their God-given right to pollute the Earth as much as they want to ! I have lived here for decades, interface with people every day re renewable energy proposals, still the great majority are not the slightest bit interested. the land of the free, the home of the narcissists.
