Utilities Face Threat From Vivint, Google, Comcast, AT&T – Businessweek

“The battleground over the next five years in electricity will be at the house,” says David Crane, CEO of NRG Energy NRG, whose company has made large investments in solar and is facing off against established utilities. “When we think of who our competitors or partners will be, it will be the Googles, Comcasts, AT&Ts who are already inside the meter. We aren’t worried about the utilities, because they have no clue how to get beyond the meter, to be inside the house.” Collaborating with Comcast, Crane’s NRG is running a trial in Pennsylvania that adds electricity to the traditional cable, phone, and Internet triple-play package.
