That's wonderful news. It'd be nice were they to pop on and have a bit of a say on the project where they might.

Coastal areas, East, West, and Gulf States could leverage their access to the ocean in using tidal and wave action electrical generators as well as
coastal wind farming to take advantage of the predictable ocean breezes coming off the long flat expanses of water.
Iceland, if I recall correctly even does geothermal electrical generation in exploiting their wealth of access to volcanic activity.
Such could very well be done in the Hawaiian islands, the Yellowstone area as well as other hot springs locations, plus all along the Pacific
Northwest up into Alaska in taking advantage of their position along the Ring of Fire.
Imagine too, were we to dam the Mississippi River in a series of hydroelectric producing stages. A system of locks could be managed for ship and
barge traffic similar the Panama Canal all the while generating electricity.
The entire river could be more easily managed against flood disasters as well.
We've ample natural, sustainable resources available to supply abundant electricity without the need for coal, oil, natural gases and other
