More information so you can control and stabilize your electric bills. Faster restoration of power outages. More cost-efficient production and delivery of electricity to our homes, schools and businesses. More renewable energy. This is what Maui Electric Co. is proposing through our smart grid project that will upgrade and further modernize the existing electrical systems on Maui, Molokai and Lanai.To help address the misleading May 10 Viewpoint, a smart grid computerizes the electrical system through a protected, private wireless communication network – not the open internet – and safe smart meters.
Western Power Distribution has commissioned a global appraisal of smart grid telecoms solutions to identify key emerging technologies and best practices.
Through a first-of-its-kind analysis, the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative’s (SGCC) Empowered Consumer Report has found that consumer awareness for next-generation smart energy technologies is at an all-time high, and best aligned with a smart grid customer segmentation. By surveying more than 1500 consumers, The Empowered Consumer has explored to what extent consumers are aware of smart energy technologies, their level of interest in adopting these technologies, and what reservations they have about doing so.
