Sanders To Talk Up Smart Grids
Senator Bernie Sanders is going to be talking about the benefits of "smart grid" technology for the state of Vermont.
Sanders plans to discuss the issue today with some of Vermont's environmental leaders in Burlington.
Sanders says Vermont is a leader in the nation on development of a smarter, stronger, more efficient and reliable electric system, that promotes renewable energy sources and saves money.
David Hallquist is the head of the Vermont Electric Cooperative. He'll share what his utility learned through its almost universal roll-out of smart grid technology.
Proponents say smart grid technology can help consumers and utilities better manage electric use, saving power and money.
