Federal Regulatory Commission Orders Exams of Substation Security Across NC and the Nation

The Carolina Journal is reporting that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has ordered an examination of  security at substations across the country after the sabotage on December 3rd. 3  that left 45,000 Moore County residents without power for four days. The order gives officials 120 days to generate a report and make  recommendations on how to keep the grid safe from attack at the local  level, likely to include items like security cameras and enclosures.  There are 55,000 similar substations across the nation, and physical  attacks on them have become more common, according to FERC Chairman  Richard Glick.
