In January, a U.S. Department of Homeland Security report warned that domestic extremists have been developing "credible, specific plans" to attack electricity infrastructure since at least 2020. The DHS report warns that extremists "adhering to a range of ideologies will likely continue to plot and encourage physical attacks against electrical infrastructure."

FERC and other agencies recommended utilities to take specific measures to protect vulnerable substations, like adding walls, sensors or cameras. Still, many remain exposed in rural areas of the U.S. And experts have warned for years that taking out a few substations could cause rolling blackouts in the U.S., leaving millions without power.

The loss of electrical power to 45,000 citizens and hundreds of businesses is not a one time event! Previous attacks on substations in other states and, earlier this year, near Camp Lejeune, N.C., are quickly forgotten even as we acknowledge continuing vulnerabilities.

We have no choice but to demand that elected and power company officials immediately seek and execute solutions for protecting substations in all 100 counties across North Carolina! These latest criminal/terrorist acts are a "wake-up" call. Will we wake up?

The ramifications of sabotage go beyond spoiled food! The multimillion dollar cost to repair equipment is significant but the collateral financial and psychological damage, and disruption to families, businesses, schools, law enforcement, medical facilities/patients and vehicular travel, is even higher!

You have a voice! Please sign the petition. But do not stop there. Share the petition with everyone you know, encouraging them to join us in demanding an immediate and permanent solution!
