One of the miracles of the modern era is the reliability of the power grid. An understanding of how a utility operates will not only allow a better understanding of how the electricity we use daily is generated and transported to our homes and businesses, but will provide insight into how alternative technologies such as Smart Grids and Demand Response will change the way we think of power generation, transmission, and distribution. 

  • How does a utility transmit and distribute electricity?
  • How is the electric power generated?
  • What is Demand Response?
  • How is deregulation related to utility markets?
  • Who is the CAISO and what function does it perform?
  • What is a Smart Meter and how does it relate to the Smart Grid?
  • What is the Renewable Portfolio Standard?
  • What technologies will have the greatest impact going forward? Come join us for this special EcoGreen Group meeting.
