One with adequate fresh water.

Is there such a place?

I'm asking because I live in the Pacific Northwest, where it's rainy, damp, and there are lakes and rivers galore. Our primary source of energy is hydroelectric power.

However, this place has built up and overgrown so much, even our water supply gets strained sometimes. A couple of years ago when California was having its energy/electrical crises, we were selling them some of our power. Well, one relatively dry summer and we were short power, too, and rates shot thru the roof. Voluntary water conservation was under way, and we were asked not to water our lawns.

Were you thinking of a rural area, maybe? If you could find a place where people are moving AWAY, it might work out. (Could get decent housing prices, too).
