Electrical grid vulnerability

Eco-terrorists? – Someone, shot up San Francisco power plant Tuesday.

California energy officials urged people in the South Bay to cut back on power use Tuesday after a PG&E substation was damaged by vandals [sic] overnight.

The California Independent System Operator issued a Flex Alert for Tuesday, asking Santa Clara County and Silicon Valley utility customers to cut down their electricity use until midnight, including by lowering lighting, turning off thermostats and powering down unnecessary appliances.

Vandals appeared to have shot up a bank of transformers at a PG&E transmission center just southeast of San Jose, a PG&E spokesman said. Crews were working to clean up an oil spill caused by bullet holes.

Just sayin’ ….

  2. Vulnerable?

    Chain saw vs. telephone pole. Sure to immobilize a town. Our nation is not equipped to handle a real uprising or serious planned attack. We will always be off guard.
