US power grid

Today on Your Call: How does the electrical grid work in the US?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the US electric grid.  Recently, a power failure cut electricity to approximately 670 million people across Northern India.  Could the United States be susceptible to such a widespread outage?  How is our system structured?  What are its strengths and weaknesses?  How are we shifting to a more sustainable grid for our future power needs?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  Is our current system preventing a real shift to renewables?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
