All of the proposals had to be done in line with the state energy plan to increase electricity generation from renewable resources.

The models were then presented to National Grid President Ken Daly.

"This is a great partnership for National Grid because we're really trying to educate our future customers and our future workforce," explained Daly. "One of the reasons we're participating is to both teach students about the importance of clean energy, but at the same time, learn from them. They have some really good ideas. They're close to the issues and they're going to help us create a clean energy system."
