When you turn on a light at your house, somewhere a power plant (or a wind turbine) makes a little more power in order for that light to go on. Electricity supply and electricity demand must be equal at all times, and that equality is the work of “the grid” and those who maintain it. The grid is a carefully engineered miracle.
This course is designed to help people understand how the grid operates, and how grid-level decisions affect their lives and electricity bills. Another question: who makes these grid-level decisions? This course will help participants understand the grid, its economics, and its politics.
