Another reason to get a backup generator.

The FBI just advised Congress that Chinese hackers are targeting US infrastructure such as the electrical grid and water treatment.

Quoting from the CNN article:
“The Chinese hackers are working “to find and prepare to destroy or degrade the civilian critical infrastructure that keeps us safe and prosperous,” Wray said. “And let’s be clear: Cyber threats to our critical infrastructure represent real world threats to our physical safety.”

As we continue to transition the grid, with more distributed resources like wind, solar and batteries, we open up more areas for the hackers to infiltrate. It is important for you to take action and get backup power in case the worse happens.
