$1M DOE grant to help prevent the next major power outage

Most of us only think about voltage when we replace a battery in an appliance such as a child’s toy, electric toothbrush, or remote. On a larger scale, voltage levels vary for different sections of power systems and has to be kept within a set range for the power system to work properly and safely....
