Can anything that runs on electricity be hooked up to a smart grid?

    That’s the general idea. As long as something has a little computer chip to go with it, it can be hooked up to a smart grid. Large appliances such as washing machines and dryers are prime candidates to be hooked up to a smart grid. The advantage to doing that would be that people could set their appliances to turn on late at night when the energy demand is lower than the supply. Electric vehicles are another big thing that people are hoping to hook up to a smart grid. Since electric vehicles can store energy for later, owners could potentially make money off of their batteries by selling energy back to the grid when demand is high.
