Which costs money, no? So the question is whether it's more economical for 3rd world countries, which don't have an existing infrastructure, to build one, or to use distributed power systems.
I only have one experience with one third-world country, but they have a consistent problem with things they like blowing up.

I tell you, bridges are handy!

I wonder if they will ever have power lines.
