More power for Iraq

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Iraqis have added a brand new, built from scratch, 28 Megawatt generator that can power 84,000 homes in and around the Nasiriya Power Station near Al Amarah. If you've ever been to Riverbend's Blog I'm sure you've heard her whine and complain about crappy electricity. Well guess what, America was listening and is doing something about it. As the report from Centcom states (which you will probably never see in the REAL news) the Iraqi power grid can now service 15.6 million homes with 5,200 Megawatts.

If you would like to know what else the Corps is doing in Iraq you can go here. Please be patient as the pictures take a while to load.
