“If a phone can be smart, why can’t the electric grid?” quotes Maria LaRosa, the host of the Weather Channel’s AMHQ program.

Today, Smart Wire Grid’s CEO Jim Davis joined LaRosa on her program to talk about the weather related challenges and the congestion that the US grid is facing.

Davis says, “The largest manmade machine in the world is the US power grid.  It has served us extremely well for the past hundred years. But, it is now aging. It is getting old. If Alexander Graham Bell came back from the dead, his mind would be blown away from the smart phone. But, if Thomas Edison came back, nothing has changed.”

On this interview, Davis noted the significant losses that the economy is facing with an aging electric grid and the need for advanced technologies like Smart Wire Grid’s.
