Smart Grid

An energy system that manages electricity consumption through continuous monitoring, remote computerization and automation. The traditional electric transmission system required physically sending workers into the field to periodically read customer meters and find where problems existed in the grid. Smart grid operators; however, can remotely monitor and control the use of electricity to each home or business.
