Since the electric grid was built in the 1890s, technology has changed just as significantly and almost as rapidly as demand has increased. According to the Department of Energy, our current grid consists of more than 9,200 electric generating units, with more than 1 million megawatts of generating capacity connected
Often, two technologies emerge more or less simultaneously, and then reinforce each other as mutually compatible technologies. In doing so, they can create a kind of synergy together and make one another more efficient, more cost-effective, more profitable, and more useful—like a pair of horses working together to pull a
