Agreed, this is a good place to start. It's a bit doom & gloom, but most 
people underestimate just how much work it takes power companies to 
generate and distribute energy. Consequently, they never have to think 
about generation and/or load management, if they had to do it on their 
own, meaning they will usually consider the cheapest solution possible, 
which for electricity, usually ends in tears.
