Much of the innovation in the sector is happening through initiatives outside of this system - including programmes that the govt supports. Distributed generation through smaller plants rather than the mega projects.
Maybe a company that integrates solar and storage; but operates at a high profit margin to subsidize research and development?

I could afford but would never buy one.
How about a 2nd-hand Tesla battery pack and a magic box to make it a 75-95kWh 'powerwall'?

Full unmodified Tesla Model S 85kWh battery pack installed in home solar installation of our Selfish Solar design powers the entire shop. This may also be the simplest solar electric power system you've ever seen assembled.

Perhaps the solution isn't to limit the people's electricity, perhaps its to start providing more usable water? Thats how this guy is thinking, as he tries to help out the world's poor (but not lazy).
