In August 2003, 45 million people in 8 U.S. states and 1 Canadian province experienced the largest electrical blackout in history. Stores were looted, cell phones died, trains stopped running, and water services were disrupted. The incident underscored what professionals in energy industries understand very well: power systems require careful management and thoughtful oversight.
