Obama promotes 'smart grid'
Washington (AP) - After an overnight stay in Miami, President Barack Obama heads to Arcadia, Fla., to promote "smart grid" technologies.
 
Obama on Tuesday will tour the DeSoto Next Generation Solar Energy Center where he'll announce Recovery Act funding for a variety of "smart grid" technologies. The technologies are designed to make the nation's electricity grid more reliable and efficient and allow for the integration of clean, renewable energy. They also can help consumers save money.
 
Later, Obama travels to Norfolk, Va., where he'll speak at a rally for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds at Old Dominion University.
 
The president returns to the White House in the evening.
