The grid in the spotlight, where it belongs

Document Actions

I want to thank Jonathan Thompson for his very informative, well-researched and well-written article on the electrical grid ("Haywired," HCN, 5/27/13). This is certainly a growing problem in this country and one that is not receiving the attention from utility companies and government agencies that it should. I suppose there will have to be some really major crises before the ever-more complex grid receives that much-needed attention. I also want to thank HCN for making this the feature article. I do hope enough people read this and that there will be other grid stories written, so that some changes will be forthcoming.
