Missed the Key

By jim.aimone ·
Nice article. However, as is common with all articles being written to date about the Smart Grid, it missed the key component that is required to have an immediate impact on Energy usage nationwide.
Specifically we are talking about the Home/Office/Factory Automation piece that will provide customers with tools that they can use to both monitor and CONTROL (Key) consumption of electricity both on premise and remotely.
Until we provide customers with these tools (Hardware and Software) for their Home Area Networks we will be spinning our wheels.
What is needed is a Partnership between the Utility and the local Services Providers (Broadband Wired or wireless services) that share the costs with the consumer-all 3 parties having an interest in reducing the usage and managing their costs.

Lost post?

Was this in reference to an article?

You may want to return to that article and use the Reply boxes at the bottom, under the 'What do you think' heading. By doing that, your comments will remain attached to the article you're discussing.

It appears you mistakenly used the 'Start a Discussion' button. This resulted in your comments being separated from the original article. This makes it difficult for other readers to connect your remark to the article you're commenting on.
