    This is the context where I was discussing a trunk electric system in combination with an electrification of primary trunk freight rail lines ... while there may not be adequate drops in much of Iowa and the Dakotas, there would seem to be in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and if the trunk runs through those states, then direct links to the trunk to connect those drops to the trunk line that can provide a substantial buffer between those wind resources and the Greater Chicago metroplex.

    And then in reasonable proximity to that power buffer may be a compelling site for energy intensive operations such as aluminum smelting (or recycling) and ammonium production.

      Once I am sure we've got renewable ammonia moving here I'll move on to rail electrification. You know Alan Drake, right? We met over Christmas ... there are a lot of reasons to run a transmission corridor along a rail line ...
