Electricity and water don't mix, unless you are using water as an analogy. Then it works so well basically all the time.

The way I see it, you can fill a reservoir from lots of little streams, or even massive rivers. Sending 8.4 cubic miles of water (77.3 trillion pounds) at Hoover dam all at once (the reservoir's capacity), and it's gonna fail.
