Growing Grid Costs

Growing Grid Costs

In this photo taken Friday, July 13, 2018 Grid One Solutions employee Spencer Powell removes an older electric meter to install a new smart meter for Duke Energy Progress at a residence in Raleigh, N.C. Electric utilities are pouring billions of dollars into a race to prevent terrorists or enemy governments from shutting down the power grid while also making the delivery system ready for a world with much more renewable energy. Utilities have long based their business on building power plants and selling the juice to customers to pay for it all. With energy conservation making big new plants less necessary, utilities are banking on future profits from updating the power grid. (AP Photo/Gerry Broome)
