No powerbanks for uninterrupted power?

Interesting. One would think that MIT of all places would have more resilience engineered into its power distribution systems.

There’s nothing along that stretch except student housing - literally the last place MIT admin would consider building microgrids.
It’s notable that the campus police hq, located next door to Wang and Westgate (which both went dark), was unaffected by the outage.

Given their energy people's spinning out of Great Climate Ideas, one would think they could set up their nuke to run a microgrid.

I guess what they recommend for others versus what they could test out on their own property are two different things.
