"Smart meters give consumers choices of when to use lower-cost electricity. For example, someone with electric car can choose to charge at night rather than middle of the day."

Smart metering of household utility use is gaining traction in the United States, and deployment of the devices is projected to increase once a home-energy network standard is adopted for the devices. 

"Gregg Edeson says smart meters enable consumers to operate devices such as washers and dryers at times when they might receive lower rates," says the article.

"The smart grid is an all-inclusive model," Edeson said. "Smart meters give consumers choices of when to use lower-cost electricity. For example, someone with an electric car can choose to charge it at night rather than in the middle of the day."  

On the topic of implementation of Smart Meters in California and the current issue of personal data collection, "Edeson expects this to be only a short-term problem, noting customers will want utilities to have this information so they can call for advice on cutting costs by shifting usage."
