  1. Thanks for posting this. A number of times that the subject of grid systems been posted here; I have pointed to our system here as an example on how to.

  2. Chattanooga’s smart streetlights include a wireless network

    Chattanooga is now replacing its high-pressure sodium outdoor lighting with induction and LED fixtures. And that’s not all. These new fixtures have built-in wireless radios…….

    By combining energy-efficient fixtures with FlexNet wireless control, Chattanooga is expected to save up to $2.7 million annually in energy and maintenance costs. For all the money Chattanooga is investing in its smart grid, the city is setting itself up for some serious cash returns as well.

    A smart city! But if only we could increase the intelligents of the people here!!

  3. To provide a little history here – Chattanooga was once one of the most polluted cities in the US. It, literally, was a dirty, stinking backwater of a town. By embracing environmental awareness and green technology, Chattanooga has quickly become one of the most livable cities in the southeast. Think Seattle lifestyle with less traffic and warmer summers.

    I’ve lived in Chattanooga for 10 years, and am constantly impressed by what goes on here.

    Chattanooga is one of the initial markets for The EV Project — which means I’ve had a 100% electric Nissan LEAF for over 18 months, charged by a free Blink EVSE in my garage. Within a 25 mile radius of downtown, we have over 60 public EV chargers at about 45 locations, including two solar powered carports available to the public — probably more chargers per capita than anywhere else in the country.

    I love this town!

    Public network? Non-profit utility? Gubmint handout?

    F@#$ing commies!!

    • That southern accent didn’t fool me either. EPB’s mission statement proves that they’re UN operatives “improving human settlement management”.

      “Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community by providing energy, communications and related services reliably, efficiently and courteously at the lowest reasonable cost. As a community-owned company, our goal is not to build stock value or amass wealth. It is to help as many people in our community as possible, improving our community through reliable products and services at the lowest reasonable cost. To achieve this goal, we prioritize technology-based innovation, unequivocal excellence in all aspects of the company, reliability, honesty and integrity, exceptional customer service, and corporate social responsibility.”

        The UN?? Right, I get it now. They’re secretly subverting free America to implement Agenda 21, just like His Most High Lordship of Brenchley has been warning us.

        We should be grateful for his unflagging vigilance – Monckton be praised!
