Default Smart Grid Funding

Obama is making an announcement in FL today at 12:30 ET that $3.4B in funding is being made to 100 Smart Grid projects aimed at improving the electrical and energy infrastructure.

Fingers crossed... my small company is part of 2 of the 400 proposals that were submitted.

Long overdue. Get this done. It's one step towards changing the way we use energy in this country.

I was able to watch air force one and marine one land and take off. I don't care who the President is - it's still impressive every time you see it.

I had the same feeling when I was in Washington a few years ago, walking down the street towards the Jefferson Memorial when Bush II's motorcade rolled by. I mean I hated everything Bush stood for as a President but it was still exciting to be that close.

Yeah. The list of the awards today were the Investment grants.

Our proposals are part of demonstration projects, and the list of those awards haven't been released yet.

Good luck Tim. I know what it is like waiting and it is not fun. I am waiting for the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to release their 2009 grants.
