Source? My home is exclusively wind powered. The only failures have been caused by the legacy power company being a shit corporation and not maintaining lines.

Why would the legacy power company maintain the lines between your windmills and your house?

Its fucking stupid. My state allows you to buy power from sources other than your local power company. Sure, you save a few bucks per year, but you're the last for repairs by the local power company when there's damage or necessary maintenance.

Because they own them, and lease them to other providers. I have about 30 power companies to choose from thanks to this system.

I would like to see the same laws that make this possible applied to internet, we already have a working model in how power is using line sharing.
