Something I've not thought about but only adds to the argument for developed transmission and interconnections between U.S. regions: the different timezones can relieve the load stress and cut costs during peak demand. East to west transmission allows energy created in the west, say around 3 p.m. when demand is low and the price is cheap, to be sent to the East coast, where it helps subsidize demand with cheaper energy during its peak times. It will be interesting to see where Biden's plan takes our energy infrastructure, if it passes, that is.
