Matt, in engineering the simplest way to get the job done is nearly always the cheapest and most reliable.

If our job is to bring reliable, inexpensive electricity to the most people, DERs are going straight backwards.

However, If our job is allow more people to profit from a piece of the energy pie, to pretend electricity customers have freedom of choice, to sell as many solar panels as possible, or ignore economies of scale and burn billions of extra cubic feet of natural gas, DERs are the obvious choice!
