Jason Few, President of Reliant Energy joined us for a recent Bauer Business Focus on KUHF.

On Bauer Business Focus – A conversation on electric power innovation with Ed Mayberry, business reporter for KUHF-88.7 FM.

Much has been said about how smart meters will revolutionize the way we use energy, but few people have had the chance to experience it. Jason Few, President of Reliant Energy joins us for an upcoming Bauer Business Focus on KUHF to explain Reliant’s role in rolling out smart meters and other innovations in electric power.

“Smart meters are just another piece of technology until someone makes them useful for the consumer,” says Few. “The digitization of the grid makes electric companies more operationally efficient – but how does it impact us?”

He explains, “Reliant is working on is time-of-use pricing and in home displays that let people see real-time how their energy purchasing decisions, like turning on a pool pump or turning on the AC, really impact their usage and impact their billing. Over time, customers can adjust their usage consumption to take advantage of lower rates during non-peak hours.”

Now that’s smart.
