Main Street Weekend for February 28th


Sunday, February 28, 2021 - Dave Thompson starts us off with a Sunday morning news summary. ~~~ We had two interviews related to the power grid last week, and we feature them today for Main Street Weekend. With power outages in Texas causing rolling blackouts as far north as Minnesota and North Dakota, we visited about the nation’s energy grid with Tony Clark, who served on the North Dakota Public Service Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. ~~~ We follow that with John Bagu, who lives off that grid. He discusses what it takes to become energy self-sufficient.
