The need to transform the infrastructure and regulated monopoly business model for electricity service is becoming widely accepted. This “Electronet” transformation is indeed essential to achieving a sustainable energy, economic and environmental future for our nation as underscored by the DOE Smart Grid Stimulus Initiative.
The focus of this “21st Century reinvention” must, first and foremost, be on the local power distribution networks where the greatest performance improvement opportunities exist. This focus on community electricity service quality and entrepreneurial innovation will create immediate economic benefits to customers and all other electricity stakeholders that are a multiple of the costs, and with essentially unlimited upside potential.
