Socialized Energy (AKA Smart Grid)

If you're interested in talking with me about the details of this concept let me know: the essentials are this - every building has the capacity to generate its own electricity - similar capacity buildings are on separate grids, and buildings of differing capacities but in close proximity can share energy if they are one category above or below. each unit shares its energy status with live feeds to a central hub which redistributes energy along the network to make up for buildings that aren't generating enough electricity to run. in this sense, the dynamic network maintains homeostasis and all the nodes have enough energy through a shared distribution network.
