The recent article from Reuters highlights the need for States to collaborate on modernizing the electric infrastructure of the USA.  Without substantial investment and collaboration, the vision of clean power is just that. Will we be ready for the influx of electric cars that are projected to hit the roads in the next 20 years?

Do you think the fragmented nature of the U.S. state-by-state regulatory system has been a hindrance here, one that was more readily overcome by other countries who can more easily operate from top down for usch grid upgrades?

Yes! It will be difficult if not impossible IMO to design, develop and launch an energy grid that supports the changing power needs of this country without Federal oversight. 

Inaction at the state level is a national threat. Just look at what is happening in Texas.
