The electricity carries that information within it.

Crazy right?

Basically, when you generate electricity thru solar or wind, the electricity carries some extra pizazz with it.

They've got these things called "GPSes" that let them know about local energy production. For people with solar panels directly powering their home, they likely know not to use this feature :).
