The Nearshore Advantage

SmartGrid Electricity Delivery System

The United States electric grid is a network of transmission and distribution lines, substations, transformers, and devices that deliver alternating current electricity from power generation sources (coal, nuclear, hydroelectric, wind, solar, biomass, and natural gas generation plants) to homes and businesses. Development of the infrastructure and power grid was one of the great electrical engineering achievements of the 20th century. However, increasing power demands and increasing system complexity require major improvements to meet the requirements of the 21st century.

Maybe you caught the baby’s first smile or the game winning score. The fact remains that you have something to share. Up until now, you had to go about using some kind of “clunky” method. The popular ways of sharing include email, SMS text message, or a photo sharing site such as Flickr. It’s not really a big hassle to text it or email it but what happens when you don’t have the person’s email or phone number? Then you have to ask for their phone number or email (which you’ll probably mistype). You also might not want them to have your number or email.
