    ... "$20 million this fiscal year with a $100 million commitment for the overall CITRIS project, promises major energy savings for the state and nation. Among the innovative ideas already emerging from CITRIS is that of outfitting buildings with wireless sensor networks to monitor energy use - technology that could save as much as $8 billion in California's energy costs and 5 million metric tons of carbon each year. ...

    These guys seem right on.  This is exactly the sort of thing I am looking for.  What would really be nice is if I could partake without moving to California (from NJ), and enrolling in some university there.  But I guess that I'd even be willing to do this if I had to.

    I'll have to research this one more.  Thanks.
