Our electric infrastructure has hardly changed since Edison’s influence at the start of the 20th century. That’s about to change. The way people use electricity and gas is being transformed thanks to technological innovations that are similar to ones that we have seen in other industries.
Summit Plaza in Jersey City, New Jersey, is a four-building, 483-unit apartment complex that is home to mostly low-income families.

Did you know, for example, that each branch operates independently yet for the common good of the whole – using its leaves to feed itself and then sending reserves to the root system to be used by the rest of the tree? Yes, I love trees. Continue reading
