Powering a Generation of Change is a Smithsonian Institution documentation project that is a response to the coming deregulation of the electric power industry in the United States and Canada. The site is interesting almost as much for its information on electricity and the history of electric power regulation, as for its information explaining deregulation and its societal impacts. One of the highlights of the site is the Visions of Power section, with in-depth interviews with Joseph P. Kearney of US Generating, Andre Caille of Hydro-Quebec, and William T. McCormick, Jr. of CMS Energy. Visions of Power offers numerous links to information provided by a variety of participants in the deregulation debate. The Powering the Past section provides a fascinating tour through the history of electric power, accompanied by images from various Smithsonian museums. A large bibliography on electric power is also available.
