Empowered grid = the empowered electrical grid.
How does an inanimate object get empowered? Well, it’s not literal, you see. We’re playing off the word “power” in “empowered” and also how empowered we will all become if the grid gets a brain. We’ll be empowered to:
- Have more control over our energy bills, as consumers.
- Integrate cleaner energy, as individuals, cities, states and nations.
- Provide more reliable service, as utility companies.
- Use less foreign oil, as a country.
- Create more economic stability — for everyone.
That’s what empowered grid means.
