Electric Nation (Episode #103)

KQED Plus: Sun, May 6, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

Our modern electric power grid has been called the biggest and most complex machine in the world -- delivering electricity to over 300 million Americans over 200,000 miles of high tension transmission lines. But even though the grid touches almost every aspect of our lives, it's a system we know very little about. In this episode, Yul Kwon will travel around the country to understand its intricacies, its vulnerabilities and the remarkable ingenuity required to keep the electricity on every day of the year.
