Tárrases gets more than half it's electricity from its neighbor (and awkward love-hate pseudo-feudal master), Mahhal. Mahhal generates a vast proportion of its electricity using geothermal, but also burns coal and conventional fuel oil (diesal). It has some reserves of coal but imports petroleum.

Tárrases has no native resources for power generation, though there have been plans to develop a geothermal site somewhere on the island in cooperation with Mahhal Electric. There is a high voltage underwater cable from Mahhal's island of Tteu, which ties Tárrases to the Mahhalian grid. And the island has a diesel electric generating plant next to the small refinery at Espadas y Cascos. The island's main trunks run north to south, with the part between the Bulevar Eddison substation and the Serpiente Ascendente substation being underground, and the remainder being high tension aboveground lines.

All those neon signs in the red-light and gambling districts need lots of electricity. Also conveniently next to the Tarrélectrica management offices. The cables are of course all underground, here, and don't show on the map. But they're there - I've mapped them out.
