"Power Struggle" examines the problems posed by America’s continuing reliance on conventional energy sources and illustrates the innovative measures being undertaken by utility companies, oil companies, and independent producers across the country to generate energy from alternative sources. The program also explores the untapped potential of developments in energy efficiency to meet future energy needs. Narrated by Meryl Streep.

“Following the oil shocks of the 1970’s, our energy problem was simply how to replace foreign oil. Our dilemma today is how to choose energy sources that are safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally sound.” (Meryl Streep, narrator of “Power Struggle)
