Just to be clear, when I suggest the Pernese could have electricity, I'm not proposing they would have a continent-wide grid set up like us on Earth. It wasn't that long ago, even in the U.S. that power generation was a local town -wide phenomenon. The town I live in was a company town and had a coal-fired electric plant. Many had hydroelectric generators where appropriately falling water was available. But then, many of the towns around here were built near water for mills and such.
