a very good article giving the gist of what PLC can bring in to tomorrows energy conscious world. This technology is really exciting and if used properly can be a win-win for both the consumers and producers of energy. The word of caution is however about the security of such systems- if hacked can result into disasters because here we are connecting the appliances and power generating devices on a smart grid. It is not just loss of data or loss of privacy and confidential information, it is the appliances which can get burnt, it is the grids that can go out of control - by the actions of those smart hackers.
