    sorry, just poking fun. Multichannel TV sound was developed in the 70s and adopted by the FCC in 1984.

    The primary issue is that the voltage levels are vastly different. output of a small wind turbine is typically in the hundreds of volts. T-lines are in the hundreds of thousands of volts.

    It's a great idea on distribution systems, electrified railways, etc. I just don't think it is feasible in the foreseeable future on t-lines.
