America is running short of electricity, and microturbines offer a solution. The power is being consumed by the information age - temperature-controlled rooms and offices, not to mention appliances that are in ever-increasing demand. Add this to the fact that high-tech equipment needs quality power, something the grid cannot always deliver.
