Sandwiched between the Atlantic and the Appalachians, the DC Supersquare has the potential to be as resilient as any region of America. With ample potential wind power to the northeast and southwest, potential geothermal power to the southwest, and existing nuclear and hydropower throughout the Supersquare, the region can respond to catastrophe by reprioritizing its production methods when necessary. And with its location in an area that avoids intense tornadoes, earthquakes, blizzards, droughts, and the brunt of Atlantic hurricanes, investment in the Supersquare becomes more justified. Like the Powhatan Empire before it, the Supersquare relies on enhanced networks around the Chesapeake Bay and it’s tributaries.
