“The existing grid does not possess the capability to mitigate the occurrences of blackouts and their adverse consequences…or
improve environmental impacts through the utilization of more renewable resources. These inadequacies place in peril our national,
economic, and environmental security and are unsuited to meet the long-term demands of the digital age.”
