Should the states or the federal government have the last word on whether to build high voltage power lines to bring renewable energy to consumers?
Congress and the Obama Administration want to expand the use of clean electricity like wind, solar, and geothermal, which they say will curb global warming and help resuscitate the economy. But many renewable energy projects are located thousands of miles from major population centers that need the electricity. How can we overhaul the national electricity grid to bring green energy to market?
