Smart grid home
NRG Energy, which owns utility Reliant Energy, showed off a smart, grid-aware home that included an electric vehicle and an in-home energy display, accessible from a TV, PC, or smart phone. Consumers can choose to have time-of-use rates where utility rates vary on the time of day. People can view energy information and schedule home usage with this under-development iPad application, a PC, or a smart phone.
