Sanders to talk ‘smart grid’ benefits

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is going to be talking about the benefits of “smart grid” technology for the state of Vermont.

 Sanders plans to discuss the issue Monday with some of Vermont’s environmental leaders in Burlington.

He says Vermont is a leader in the nation on development of a smarter, stronger, more efficient and reliable electric system that promotes renewable energy sources and saves money. 

 The head of the Vermont Electric Cooperative will share what his utility learned through its almost universal roll-out of smart grid technology. Proponents say smart grid technology can help consumers and utilities better manage electric use, saving power and money.
