    The electric grid is the network that plug into to receive power. It is connected by various transformers and transmissions lines, all of which have been added to and improved upon since the grid began in 1890s. With our rapid technological advances putting strains on the electric grid, the transition to a smart grid hopes to increase efficiency and reliability of power flow. The smart grid will work like a computer, quickly transferring digital information and allowing two-way communication.

    It hasn’t been fully put into effect, but some benefits include:

    -Better security

    -Reduced wait-time for electricity to return after an outage

    -Lower utility and maintenance costs

    -More efficiency during peak hours
