Why is our power going out when we have a generator in our park, fueling other cities around us? Pathetic.

An interesting point. But owning an electric generation facility would not guarantee problem free electric distribution.

The only way it wouldn't generate electricity is if the river stopped flowing, which I can't see happening for a very long time. We can simply make electricity, but instead, we pay large prices for imported electricity.

Whoever you are that smacked into the utility pole, thanks for nuthin'!! Lost time, lost work, and a wrecked piece of equipment. If careless or impaired driving was the cause I hope you never get to drive again for the rest of all time.

I think you missed my point. Hydroelectric plant = generation. Poles & Wires = distribution.

Power plant- Generation (Ac)
Power cables- Distribution
Transformers- Regulation
Wall adapter- Conversion (Ac to Dc)

Not only are we paying for further distribution, we are paying for ecologically destructive methods for producing electricity, as most all conventional power plants suited for large range distribution consume fuel and produce harmful by-products. We have an environmentally safe method for producing electricity, which would still need to be pushed through our power cables and transformers, but would be more cost effective and lower power bill prices. Even if this isn't the case, we should be able to tap into it for situations like when someone crashes into a telephone pole.
