Electrical Grid Vulnerability

Do you take your electrical power supply for granted?

Many Americans do, but the fact is that our national electrical grid has become very vulnerable due to an aging and complex infrastructure, the threat of cyber attacks and terrorism, and ever-increasing extreme weather conditions across the country.

American homes, industries, and businesses are deeply dependent on reliable electricity, so threats to the consistent delivery of electricity put modern life itself at risk.

Electrical substations are critical links in the power grid, which make it possible for electricity to move long distances and distribute power to residences and businesses throughout the United States.  The interconnectivity of our grid, while beneficial also makes it vulnerable to natural disasters and cyber-attacks. Evidence of these attempted attacks is increasing in frequency.  While our utilities have many systems in place to thwart these attacks, it could happen.

Our aging electrical infrastructure also poses risks to our power needs. Reliability in our local areas is another factor. Isolated incidents, as well as wider spread outages are a familiar occurrence.  Being prepared for a power interruption with an automatic Generac Standby Generator or portable generator is no longer a luxury, but a necessity, especially for  those who work from home and require computer access on a daily basis. The conveniences of water and a refrigerator and the need for heat or sump pumps depending on the circumstances of the outage can be critical as well.

Storms and natural disasters have caused hardships due to lost power for hours, days or weeks at a time. But a cyber or physical attack on our electrical infrastructure could be much longer.

We highly recommend that all households have a personal disaster recovery plan.  A generator should be an integral part of this plan. Loss of power effects communications, emergency dispatch, fuel and transportation, security, banking, medical facilities and medications, as well as food and water.

If you don’t have an Automatic Standby Generator, or an ongoing service contract on your present generator, we urge you to be prepared and talk to Lucci Electric about the alternatives. We can provide a range of solutions that will insure that you and your family have ample power should the grid be compromised.
