Forget the hypothetical; watch Smart Grid where it’s actually happening

The Economist reported yet another story last week on the Smart Grid City in Colorado. While the Smart Grid City project (behind schedule on installing 50,000 smart meters) is interesting, it gets far more press coverage than it deserves. What are truly exciting deployments are Ontario, Canada, which has over 2 million smart meters installed on the way to completing 4.5 million by the end of next year, and the states of California and Texas, where at least 21 million smart meters – including 6 million gas – will be completed by the end of 2012.

Smart grid will deliver more to consumers when the focus is on the reality rather than the hype.
