Smart grid is a far reaching solution to help you better manage energy and save money each month. A “smart grid” is an electric “grid” that delivers power from suppliers to customers like you. A “smart grid” updates the electric grid with digital computing and two-way communication technology that will give customers more energy-saving control, reduce overall costs and increase reliability.
A smart meter is an electric meter that looks much like the meter you have now. The big difference is that it allows two-way communication between the meter and BGE through a wireless network.
