    • Like all major/impactual life altering technology. You have to release/implement it, at a rate the world can both socially and economically absorb it! Lets just say cold fusion was mastered/conquered (it just might be already) They couldn't release it to the world overnight. World govt and economies would fall off the proverbial cliff overnight.

      As for people not wanting to give up control over their electricity needs and wants. that process has already started w/out them people even knowing yet. Via the actions taken by most utility companies across America going to wireless meter reading technology. To optimize efficiency and to cut overhead, via not having to dispatch a electrical service worker, to say terminate service for non payment (boot your electric meter). It now can be done at the punch of a computer button from the local office. Big money saver there for them. Itron (ITRI) ,Badger Meter Inc (BMI), Digi International Inc. (DGII) Comverge, Inc. (COMV) all major players in the trade. I have owned and traded them all, within the last year (see below links to stockpickr.com) The backlog of products needed is impressive. Utility companies cant get the new wireless/RF meters quick enough. As for the stocks in the "smart grid trade", I am leery here at these elevated levels. Some report earnings next week. I think most were bidded up on alt energy stimulus money. And with (BMI) I feel it was the S&P and
      Russel re-balancing. It is up over 100% off bottom. It is hard to get a gage on
      the earnings #, because I'm not sure any of the Obama clean energy stimulus
      money has filtered through to their bottom line just yet.
