And this guy is for real? 300,000,000 megawatts... would be... shit... 65 plants nationwide, producing 769 billion kWh in 2012. 1.350mW average per plant. 300 million megawatts. We're sorta short  a few. Sorta would need 222million nuclear plants to produce that... Awkward.

I'm not sure if I should be or not but I'm most suprised by the fact that the broadcast music mix is done in the box via ProTools and not on a more traditional live or broadcast console.

Glad you posted this.

ASSuming he misspoke and actually meant 300 megawatts, that would be 120 3-phase 400A/208V distros.  I still find that hard to believe.  Cooling that much energy would require 1 billion BTU, or 83,333 tons of cooling.  :)

I might believe 30 megawatts available power.
