Smart Grid and Electric Cars & Greg Pahl's Power From the People


Kevin Jones, director of Vermont Law School's Smart Grid Project, on how the smart grid can help individuals and businesses save electricity and carbon emissions, plus how the smart grid can make it possible to run 70% of cars on electricity without building new generating or transmission capacity. Karen Glitman joined briefly to enthuse about her new, all-electric car, which she blogs about, and to call attention to the eight dealers showing off electric and hybrid cars Sept. 22-23 during Vermont Plug-In Weekend.

Middlebury author Greg Pahl on his new book, Power From The People. The book details how American communities can plan, finance, and produce their own local, renewable energy that is reliable, safe, and clean. 
 
Carl Etnier hosted.
