    The Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest Laboratory released findings from its GridWise project showing that consumers are willing to have utilities remotely dial down the appliances to lessen the load on the power grid and reduce their consumption. Smart grid technology provides more reliability to the power grid and allows utilities to isolate problems more easily. The study also found that clean power sources such as wind and solar pose technical challenges because they don’t supply a steady stream of electricity. These sources can be better incorporated with upgraded equipment.
