CERAWeek: The electric meter should be more than a cash register

The power business needs to change its fundamental outlook, Duke’s Jim Rogers said.
“In the future our business is really about optimizing the network and redefining the network,” Rogers said.
The power meter on homes can’t be looked at as just a cash register, Rogers said, but a two-way network node.
“Image with me our company owning and operating and dispatching 300 million solar panels” on the roofs of thousand of customers. Rogers said he thinks he can and will do it at Duke.
