What about losses over high tension power lines?

Actually, we are involved in a multistate lawsuit
involving several hydroelectric providers over the
value of water in a lake to energy providers. I don't
remember the exact efficiency numbers, as I'm not in
the office today, but I assure you, it's significantly
higher than 10%. In fact, my former boss was involved
in a project which used excess electricity to pump
water into a reservoir to store "energy" then used it
to power turbines when they needed to generate
electricity. So they used hydropower to generate
electricity, which powered pumps, which then again
powered generators. This makes absolutely no sense if
you are losing 90% each iteration.
