The long arm of the Los Alamos Police Department recently went all the way to Madisonville, Texas, to get a burglary suspect.
In this case, that man happened to be suspect Timber Morrow. Police are accusing Morrow of burglarizing the “Smart House” in 2013.
The Smart House, located at 1925 Trinity Drive, is a testing ground for new energy distribution technology. It’s a collaboration between the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology and Development Organization.
According to an earlier story that appeared in the Los Alamos Monitor, the house includes two sources of alternative power and is hooked into the LANL’s and NEDO’s larger, experimental “Smart Grid” of photovoltaic cells that is currently supplying approximately 1 megawatt of power to Los Alamos.
According to that story, “features of the house include passive solar design, its own PV array and storage battery to augment power from the grid, a ‘smart’ meter to indicate usage and power supply available in real time and smart appliances as well as an HVAC system that responds to the amount of power available. Computer systems that allow residents to monitor and control usage are being demonstrated and tested by Kyocera, NEC and Sharp.”
