Is the power grid too big? Right-sizing the grid could reduce blackout risk

Some 90 years ago, British polymath J.B.S. Haldane proposed that for every animal there is an optimal size—one which allows it to make best use of its environment and the physical laws that govern its activities, whether hiding, hunting, hoofing or hibernating. Today, three researchers are asking whether there is a “right” size for another type of huge beast: the U.S. power grid.
