Sure, but where is that power going to come from? I'm no engineer, but I find it hard to believe that a power plant will suddenly come back to life after 15 years of inactivity.

Wind up radios are easy enough to use to check if electricity is working again. Solar panels. All those solar powered out door lights.

24 hours after the power came back there would be all kinds of signs.

Yeah, I guess the solar stuff would be the obvious signs, but I still think it's unlikely that many people are going to have solar lights in use.

Some of the lights flickering may have been the nanites discharging, they would explain the lighting bolts to. Still, 15 years later you have an electronics store still stocked with a suddenly working laptop... Eye roll... True, that part was a dream to but how would Aaron fall for that. I would assume that some electronics during the 15 years would might have been melted down to try to get some precious metals (however minute) out of them.

OH, yeah, it would be a long time before practical use of electricity was available. Just saying that people would know pretty quick that it could be done.

We still may see power again. The nanites say they are moving on to other things, so that might involve controlling (Skynet peace of crap LOL) the humans and thus turning on power where they need to accomplish there goals.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

The nanites have been sucking electricity, in one form or another for years, when "the power gets turned back on" what happens is that they go from suck to blow and it is they who are powering all the random devices within their field of influence.

If the nanites are sucking bio-electricity, static electricity and the odd bolt of lightning as they occurr, it's possible that as long as they are co-operative that they could sustain mans power needs in perpetuity.
