2. One thing lost in the current argument

The "Grid" for all intents and purposes was built by We The People. Just like the Interstate Highway system and the Internet itself, the electrical supply grid were predominately paid for by tax dollars with grants and government programs from the beginning.
Electrical generating corporations are reaping profit on the public teat. The commercial distribution of goods is accomplished due to public moneys spent on highway systems. The massive accumulation of wealth by internet providers and web enterprise is dependent on a network created by our citizens.
WE THE PEOPLE need to get a fair share back and we need to be involved in how these systems are best used.
