I was just reading about the electrical power crises in India. It reveals a major problem in mankind's way of life. As you rightly state, we are too dependent on electricity provided through single systems. Some years back, where I live, we had a major ice storm that knocked out our electricity in January, the coldest month of the year where temperatures are way below freezing. I had to survive about a week without any heat or lights. I survived but it was horrible. I had to sleep with a coat and ski pants. There has to be a better way and there is but greed stands in the way!
