Scada systems in power grids are centralized and represent a single point of failure and vulnerability. The Distributed Ledger in BlockChains and the use of smart contracts with guaranteed execution provides a clean slate approach to a parallel reliability system with multiple nodes and miners. This concept and implementation makes for a harder target to penetrate and hack compared to current Scada systems. As a private P2P network transaction times are in microseconds and an Ethereum based system can also have EWatts as a "currency". A prototype Smart grid of this system is built with Raspberry Pi3Bs as nodes and laptops as miners. Energy harvesting nodes supply EWatts to the Storage nodes which then source EWatts to users.
