Smart Grid Tough Sell
When it comes to persuading consumers about the benefits of Smart Grid, utility executives are cautious. According to a survey released last week by Oracle Corp., utilities executives think Smart Grid is going to be a tough sell. Most of the concern stems from potential rate increases consumers are likely to face.
The Oracle survey also found that only one in five utility executives are planning system-wide smart meter deployments.
Martin LaMonica at CNET's Green Tech blog has a helpful summary of the survey (http://bit.ly/cukSB3).
