What’s smart about smart grids? They’re able to predict the behavior of electricity suppliers and consumers and route power accordingly, with maximum efficiency. Learn more in The WATT?

Solar power in 1883? Long before Jimmy Carter put solar water heaters in the White House, people have been thinking about and using renewable energy. Here’s a great magazine cover from 1883 of a solar printing press! http://ow.ly/l1fQY You’ll find this and much more in The WATT? focusthenation.org/the_watt

Producing power right where you need it (for example through solar panels) is one solution to an aging electricity grid and the energy losses that are part of long distance transmission. Learn more in The WATT? www.focusthenation.org/the_watt

Empowering a Generation to Power a Nation
Introduction
The official Google+ of Focus the Nation! 
Focus the Nation is the country’s leading clean energy youth empowerment organization. Since 2008, we have helped more than 300,000 young people embrace the challenges, excitement and realities of moving their communities toward clean energy solutions.

We believe that all Americans share an obligation to transform the way we power our communities and our lives, and that young leaders are uniquely positioned to further this cause. In recent years, it has become more apparent than ever that our environment and communities can no longer sustain how we currently extract and use energy. All FTN programming is intensely focused on empowering young people’s imaginative, civic and systems-thinking capacities so they can become powerful agents of change in their own communities on this very issue. The skills that young people gain through our programming can be applied for decades in addressing the root causes that affect our current environmental, social, political and entrepreneurial challenges.
