Smart Grid is coming to Vermont. Do you know what it is and how it will 
impact our state? Potentially, Smart Grid will mean better electric 
service and provide customers with opportunities to reduce their carbon 
footprint and their electric bills. The addition of high speed 
information and communication technology to the electric grid will 
change the way utilities operate and how customers interact with them. 
Greater reliability, operational efficiency and customer choice are the 
cornerstones of Smart Grid.This seminar is intended to provide an 
introduction to the Smart Grid system and a forum to answer audience
