April 10, 2015 (San Diego's East County) - Local Power Inc compares one of the Biggest threats to grid stability to a traffic jam. It is a direct consequence of population centers relying on distant power sources. The nations power lines are full of electricity that travels hundreds of miles before it is used. When too much energy converges on a local substation, it overheats, there are black-outs or brown-outs, and costly upgrades are needed. An obvious alternative solution is to develop sources close to where the power is needed, so that more transient electricity can be taken off the grid. This is one of the many revelations on the Local Power Channel, a branded channel on the ECOreport.
