Our Current Electric System Needs Upgrading...
The smart grid promises to increase the efficiency of today’s electric system and save billions of kilowatt-hours each year.   The Smart Grid applies information technology, tools and techniques so the grid runs more efficiently. The current electric grid is inefficient for meeting today's demands.  When customers know how much energy they use,  usage will reduce.  Today's demands on energy created the need for alternative solutions to our electric system which is over a century old.  Upgrades are necessary to traditional power plants ~ Smart Grid will increase energy efficiency in a smart, lower-carbon way!
