Power Cuts in Beautiful California | October 2019

Although it is the beating heart of the technology industry, home to Google, LinkedIn and many other successful tech ventures and no doubt billions of megabytes of data – there is one problem right now in California – that is power generation.

Ageing power infrastructure is at the mercy of wildfires at the moment which have destroyed premises and houses and the Pacific Gas and Electric company has also been forced to switch off transmission power wires for fear that these may cause fires.

You can see more on the BBC website here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-49982236

Emergency backup generators? Seems like they are sold out according to social media.

Have a look at our interesting NASA map of the United States at night below; we have marked the approximate location of the wildfires, not far from the Napa Valley wine area.

Electrical Safety With UPS & Diesel Standby Generators Video

Working with powerful Generator Sets and high and low voltage switchgear makes us very conscious of the need for electrical safety – we are sure you are as well and we can all learn from the excellent NAPO safety videos as shown here:

NEWS – From our corporate website..

Over the summer the National Grid outage demonstrated how reliant as a nation we are on our electricity supply. It would be a catastrophe if there was a prolonged absence of power leaving us in darkness, stranded in our transport network and without the connectivity, we all so heavily rely on.

A recent report published by Dr Edward Oughton from Oxford University claimed that a cyber-attack on London’s power grid alone could cost as much as £111 million per day and that even a small attack on our energy network would result in chaos for 1.5 million people. He said, “Critical national infrastructure such as smart electricity networks are susceptible to malicious cyberattacks which could cause substantial power outages and cascading failure.”*

Flagged as an easy target, the National Grid is considered by many to be a weak spot that could be targeted by our enemies, so should we be concerned?
