  • The A&M Facilities Office already has an excellent plan for improvement of the electricity supply and use on campus and SECI will complement this plan
  • The cost of electricity production and use is scrutinized by the administration seeking savings and innovative ways such as SECI to produce savings
  • Currently the federal government is encouraging the Smart Grid implementation such as SECI by providing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds
  • Both the A&M staff responsible for electric energy production and delivery and A&M faculties proposing SECI are seeing sustainable solutions as common goal
  • The expertise needed to specify and implement SECI solutions is readily available on TAMU Campus and complements industry solution offerings
  • Scores of companies are actively pursuing the Smart Grid solutions and SECI meets business objectives of many prospective industry partners
