It’s coming almost two years later than expected, but Elizabeth City is moving forward with implementing a new $3.75 million “smart grid” system for its electrical and water systems. The city will spend $2.25 million from its electrical fund and $1.5 million from its water-sewer fund for new smart meters, more electrical load management switches and other components, City Manager Rich Olson and Assistant City Manager Angela Cole reported to City Council Monday. Council approved pursuing the project more than two years ago, endorsing a downtown pilot project before committing to the costly, citywide project.
