Visualizing the Grid
Posted by jab12004 on May 7, 2009
I’m a huge fan of NPR, and they just finished running a series on the U.S. electrical grid and how we can/might move forward. The full story can be found here.
My favorite part, however, is the interactive map they put together on the grid. You can see the current and potential future incarnations of the grid and sources of power.
A fun game you can play is “guess which senators are more likely to be against cap-and-trade.” All you have to do is select the sources of power tab, select coal and see which states are darker.
