Too much.  Plus its a major power hog of a system.

In 2000 we had rolling blackouts from "lack of capacity".   It's coming to
light now that the lack of capacity was bastard producers shutting *down*
capacity during peak demand to create an artificial shortage.  The
basically bankrupted the state's utility and made sure all the ratepayers
took it without any lube. :(
