Have you heard of the Smart Grid? Maybe you saw it on the news or maybe you heard about it from your local energy provider, but not everybody understands what the “smart grid” actually is. Today, we’re going to focus on explaining what it means to switch over to the smart grid and some of the best ways to make the transfer; see below:
What Is The Smart Grid?
While some people try to make the smart grid out to be a complex or intricate thing, we’re going to keep it simple. The grid refers to the electric grid, or a network of transmission lines, substations, transformers and a few other components that deliver electricity to your home or business. What makes it “smart” is the new digital technology that allows for two-way communication between the utility and its customers – in other words, you.
How To Move Your Business To The Smart Grid
If you’re ready to start cutting costs and making more of a profit, it’s time to make your way over to the smart grid. What does this mean for you and your business? It means you need to start tracking your energy consumption to find out where you can make vital changes. To do so, it starts with smart meters, or power monitors that allow you to see how much energy you’re using, when you’re using it and how much it’s costing you. After all, properly managing your electricity consumption is the ultimate way to save money.
