    I have already seen some of this technology. One is the remote meter monitoring in this area. I would like to know if current “legacy” will translate to this new environment? And also, if training costs will be too high for the unemployed professional to afford? And, who would you contact to make a move in this direction?

    I have already seen some of this technology in use by my utility company. I would like to know if “legacy” skills would translate to this new platform, or if “legacy” technology is even being used. Also, where can professionals aquire the skills to work in this environment. And how affordable is it?

    Good for those who have experience in Smart Grid. But what about those like myself who have only been doing “legacy” technology? How do we get experience? And are these jobs going to be outsourced? If so, I don’t see how it helps us in the U.S.
