Maximizing the flow of high voltage electric power.
Our nation's power grid has served well for many years, but with a higher demand and infrastructure growth, it is quickly running up against its limitations. As a result, utilities have begun implementing smart grid concepts - often with government assistance - to regulate power flows and improve compatibility with consumer usage patters. Smart Grid also ensures that essential services such as police departments, hospitals, grocery stores, critical lighting and communication systems remain operational even during rolling blackouts or extreme stress on electrical infrastructures.
The Smart Grid is a collection of energy control and monitoring devices that regulate the flow of power similar to the way traffic lights and stop signs regulate traffic. Transforming our country's current grid to the Smart Grid has increased efficiency, decreased interruptions, and is entirely compatible for future energy advancements.
