Once known as demand-side management, the implementation of products and practices designed to modify electricity consumption are proven methods for electricity providers and consumers to control usage. This field is now referred to as “demand response” or “intelligent efficiency.” In today’s era of rising electricity prices and desire for green and sustainable businesses, electrical contractors are wise to familiarize themselves with this field and the various measures that can help their commercial, industrial and residential customers achieve greater control of their energy consumption and costs.
The U.S. Court of Appeals today, Wednesday, denied a call for a stay on further power auctions under the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's "new capacity zone" that is raising electricity prices in the mid- and lower Hudson Valley.
The Yuma Sun has spent the past few weeks attempting to track down intended purpose and destination of the giant electrical transformer (seen here) which recently made its way here. The 17 feet tall, 20 feet wide, 350 feet long electrical transformer slowly snaked its way across Arizona to Yuma from the New Mexico border. At 1,040,500 pounds, or about 520 tons, the transformer was hauled by a semi-truck on a specialized bed supported by 25 axles.

A system is a set of inter-related components that interact in an organized fashion toward a common purpose. When you add living organisms like humans, it becomes an ecosystem. The electric grid was a complex system, but the advent of Smart Grid technologies started a grid transformation into a complex ecosystem or collection of related systems that are generally identified as the electricity value chain.
