Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioner Christie warns America’s power grid is in big trouble

It is reassuring to know that at least some people in Washington, D.C. understand the problems our electric grid is currently facing.

Testifying before the U.S. Senate, FERC Commissioner Mark Christie warns that America’s bulk power grid is in big trouble. Christie: “I’m really afraid to say that I think the United States is heading for a very catastrophic situation in terms of reliability — hope it doesn’t happen, but I think we’re heading for potentially catastrophic consequences.”
