Beschreibung:

There’s probably a good chance that you’ve turned on your television, computer, or an appliance without giving much thought about the electric grid.
But when there’s a power outage, it’s a different story. Suddenly, you’re asking yourself questions such as:

What is the electric grid and who owns it?
Who controls the grid and how is it controlled?
What causes a grid blackout?
What is the future of the grid?

William L. Thompson, who retired from Dominion Virginia Power after thirty-eight years in the electric business, answers those questions and many more in this book for anyone curious about the electric grid and how it works.

In plain, simple language, he reveals what goes on behind the scenes at grid control centers across the country. He also explains how electricity is generated through renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.

He also examines the causes behind the largest blackout in United States history and how global warming and technological developments could permanently change Living on the Grid.
