There's a Power City on Facebook.  It's in Ireland.


It's listed as a "business" though.

There are plenty of three businesses in Washington State known as
"Power City Electric" and there's a Power City Yoga and Dance in

Wait... you live in Washington, don't you?  Bothell, huh?  That's near
Seattle.  Hmm...

The three Power City Electrics are in Spokane, Pasco and Clarkson.
They are all pretty far from where you live.

Oh, here: Power City, Hermiston, Oregon 97838  Doesn't look like a
residential area.  I googled and there's a Power City Motor Sports and
a Power City Auto Sales so it's mainly industrial.

Anyway, that's probably what you had in mind seeing as how you said
"Power City" and not "Power City Electric" and you specified the
U.S. :)
