United States Power Grid

The Power Systems Engineering Research Center maintains a web page titled “Resources for Understanding Electric Power Reliability.” It’s a great site for obtaining extensive information on blackouts and other studies. Below is a map of the power grid in the United States. To its right is a satellite image of the blackout that occurred in the Northeast on August 14, 2003.
