  •  Forget the corporate enery "experts", (0+ / 0-)

    we know that just simple easy-to-implement innovations like this will solve our energy problems (and save the planet, too)!!  Their incentive is profits.  Our incentive is helping the People and saving the planet.

    A few tiny minor details that might cost a few bucks:
    1) Raising the transmission line voltage will require changing the transformers on both ends of the line.
    2) There is a minor detail called "corona", which depends on the conductor size and the voltage.  But that's a small price to pay for saving the planet.

    •  This proposal increases profits. (1+ / 0-)
