    I mean - we could upgrade the electrical grid... it needs to happen anyway. Most of the electrical utilities are for-profit companies.

    And then electricity would just "make itself" or be gifted to us by the universe?

    We could build hippy circles. People could hold hands in a circle around a tree and slowly rotate. We'll attach them to a rotor, spin the armature......they could sing Kumbaya to pass the time.

    Energy IS gifted to us.
    Solar, Wind, Gravity, Tidal Forces etc...

    It's just a matter of harnessing it efficiently with "alien" technology which is easier and cheaper to build and maintain.

    All new technology is "alien" until it becomes mainstream.

    So we should ramp up demand before we can generate the power, solid plan.......

    They've been promising to harness these since the 70's.

    It's ok, we'll just take turns reliving the stone-age with brown outs so the newcomer electric vehicle guys can charge their cars.

    It'll be like Mayberry where only one person in the town can use the phone line at one time.
