Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I will say this: within a 20 mile radius we have two dams with 10 turbines between them. Even though Entergy, through the political process, got the right to sell power to the citizens of the city of Mountain Home, they have no generation facilities within 100 miles and I am pretty sure they just resell power from the dams that they acquire on the market. But in the event of a national disruption I still expect to have power delivered. One generator alone will more than supply all needed power for our county and the surrounding counties. Were there problems with this I would not be surprised were problems to appear in the distribution power lines - Arkies being Arkies.
