Are you studying production of local energy within the city vs. large utility energy farms?

I am helping a nonprofit build a case in front of the Public Utility Commission to produce solar energy locally rather than produce it outside the city. Solar energy from a utility-scale solar farm is cheaper per kWh. Still, when we include the transmission and distribution costs associated with upgrading the grid, localized solar energy production becomes more cost-effective. We want to prove that solar panels covering parking lots can represent not only a supply of reliable and local energy but an additional profit for the landowner. I was wondering if there is anyone out there studying already this comparative?
