Yes, and when you add National Security to the mix...power outages would 
mean data outages on the transmission lines.  That is unacceptible! 
 This BPL concept doesn't provide copper like availability which is 
required for any gov traffic.  I don't think we have anything to worry 

I'd like to know the group that sold the idea to the power 
companies...they must be some good marketeers, haha.
