What is "electrically aged"...

...as in this quote from a recipe I posted in the Stilton thread:

"...Stilton is a very strong aged cheese. One could probably substitute real Roquefert [sic] or its poor electrically aged cousin Blue Cheese and it still would be wonderful."

I searched at cheese.com or somewhere about bleu cheese, and there was no mention of anything artificial, electric, whathaveyou, except the injection of mold or mold-inducing bacteria or whatever it was, and that was just in one of the four bleus they spoke of.

TIA!

Maybe they mean refrigerated. A lot of fine European cheeses are made in natural circumstances like stone-walled dairies (or even caves), not climate-controlled refrigerated factories...
