So many 'simple' solutions to what is in fact a very complex problem.

For example, so far absolutely nobody has considered the situation where an entire area goes down power-wise. This is something I've seen several times in the last 4-5 years. On each occasion I was still able to use my land-line and notify the electricity company that there was a fault.
