When is electricity like money? The answer might be when you think of the smart grid as a debit card, complete with fees. That�s because the grid is rapidly becoming a bank for energy, something it was not designed to be. The banking capability of the grid will make a huge difference for people in the future as distributed energy resources (DER) become more important. In this discussion our units will not be dollars, but rather Kilowatt hours (KWh).
