An article in the September/October issue of EnergyBiz focuses on DOE's Smart Grid Investment Grant program and praises its impact on technology and the workforce in the energy sector. To illustrate the range of the program, the article highlights two grantees: the Western Electricity Coordinating Council's $108 million synchrophasor project in the Western Interconnection, and Talquin Electric Cooperative in Florida, with a $16 million project to upgrade infrastructure and service in an area where until recently customers read their own meters to determine their bills. OE's Deputy Assistant Secretary for Research & Development, Hank Kenchington, is quoted throughout the article.
