The Giant Underground Battery

New, 2 comments

Gizmodo recently took to the desert in Barstow to investigate the Coyote Dry Lake Return Electrode, a site whose very existence lies within the "realm of the not-entirely-confirmed." According to the Center for Land Use Interpretation, the spot hosts an underground web of wires that stores electricity, turning the area into "an electrical return battery for the California state electrical grid." All that's visible on the surface is a suspiciously-unassuming shack, but we love to believe there's something X-Files-y going on. [Gizmodo]
