Smart Grid!
Nobel Prize winner, Al Gore is urging Barack Obama to build a smart grid for American electric system.
The plan advocates immediate investment in energy efficiency, renewable power generation -- including public investment in wind, solar and geothermal technology -- and the creation of a unified national smart grid.

"Modernize transmission infrastructure so that clean electricity generated anywhere in America can power homes and businesses across the nation," the alliance said in a statement.

The alliance favors "national electricity 'interstates' that move power quickly and cheaply to where it needs to be (and) local smart grids that buy and sell power from households and support clean plug-in cars."

This will create good paying jobs for several years. A good idea. It has the Chef seal of approval.
