DOE: 5M smart grid meters installed so far under ARRA
Department of Energy - Jun 13
DOE Secretary Steven Chu has announced that five million smart grid meters have been installed nationwide as a result of intiatives funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. "To compete in the global economy, we need a modern electricity grid. An upgraded electricity grid will give consumers choices and promote energy savings, increase energy efficiency and foster the growth of renewable energy resources," said Secretary Chu. About 90% of the nation's smart grid meters are installed in California, Idaho, Arizona, Oklahoma, Michigan, Flordia, Texas and Nevada.
