This is what I have been saying for years. Although I have usually stipulated they should be using superconducting highways; I see that's not necessary to get the ball rolling on a national infrastructure. I think it should be a government run operation with subcontractors building it out. It should be government run because I feel it's a matter of national security. Should a natural disaster strike the government should have a locked in system for rerouting massive amounts of power around damaged areas. But one of the problems with the current grid is that when power is generated from renewable resources it's in areas away from where the majority of the consumers are.
