Statement of Governor Doyle Regarding Smart Grid Technology Funding

[We have received the following press release and are pleased to publish it on behalf of Gov. Doyle's office.]

MADISON – Governor Jim Doyle today made the following statement regarding $21.5 million awarded to Wisconsin utilities for Smart Grid technology under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act:

"Investing in a smarter electric grid means that we will have a stronger, more reliable system. The improvements made possible through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will give consumers more ways to save money and will support the growth of renewable energy sources like wind and solar. The $21.5 million in Smart Grid technology funds will be matched by at least that much private funding from utilities to support plug-in hybrid cars, install better home meters, and make our statewide distribution system more efficient and secure for all."
