Electrify I-40, I-95 and I-5

When you are off these interstates you run your hybrid electric or EV on gas or batteries respectively and when you are on these interstates

Phasing in digital TV is much more difficult.

A better question is where will you get 40 quads of electrical power?

For relatively short distances. Or very heavily trafficked routes. There's an economic reason for that.
