It appears to me that the "heart" of the smartgrid from the perspective of an individual or business is their power meter. According to the smartgrid concept, the power company would be changing power rates dynamically and providing that information via the meter base for user-side devices to behave accordingly for. Is that true? Is there more to it? If so, the two critical pieces of information for design are how to get that information from the meter, and how to avoid colliding with your neighbor's information (sharing airspace as well as keeping all the devices in the correct network). Where do I find information about those two items.
