Feds hand state $10 million for electrical grid project

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Federal energy officials have handed Wisconsin $10 million to improve electrical grids.

The money is part of $620 million in stimulus money that will support 32 grid improvement projects across the country.

Projects include large-scale energy storage, monitoring devices and other technological upgrades that will serve as models for the rest of the nation.

According to U.S. Department of Energy officials, Wisconsin’s share of the stimulus money will go toward a $21 million effort by Waukesha Electric Systems to develop a smaller, more efficient utility substation transformer.
