Knowing that power of any kind is available in the next county might be
handy if anything bad happened:
 Gale force winds
 Ice storms

I'm sure there are a dozen ways to find out if commercial power is available
somewhere, but if you are going to suggest new symbols, then I propose
having a symbol for standard 60Hz as well as the green stuff.

My thinking was that you would use the "E".  One could argue
that the "E" should be reserved for automatic use when the power
goes out and some systems shift to "E"mergency backup power...
On the other hand, if one is running all the time on such power,
then the "E" would also seem to apply...

THen again, we could designate "A" for Alternative energy to be
the catch-all
That can be used to indicate a combination of energy sources.
Can anyone think of any other uses for "A" for a  house before
we commit?
