Modernization of the nation’s electric grid has emerged as a priority in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).  By integrating the nation’s aging power grid with digital technology, both consumers and utilities will be empowered to manage electricity more efficiently by saving energy, reducing costs, and increasing reliability. Smart grid technology can be used to increase energy independence and address global warming issues.

VEC is currently communicating with more than 36,000 smart meters via Advance Meter Infrastructure (AMI) technology (also known as Advanced Meter Reading (AMR) technology), and is the first utility in Vermont to install and use the AMI system.
