It would take hundreds of attacks to knock the whole grid out.
It would take 30 critical substations, over a span of approx 72 hours, to drop the entire grid.
If that actually happens, it will take upwards of 18 months to get the entire grid back online, and that is assuming that water, oil, and gas continue
to flow...which they wont, as they are electrical grid dependent for far longer than onsite backups can provide.
In the case of no power, water, oil, or NG, it would take between 24 and 36 months to reinstate a full grid.
