The project is funded with $140 million in federal economic stimulus money, and is designed to serve hundreds of schools, public agencies, hospitals and libraries, the story added.

Also, a pilot project is starting in Pullman, Wash., to demonstrate the benefits of smart grid technology, CivSource reported.
