This won't happen. First of all you have to consider the economical toll this would have, I mean hundreds of billions would easily be lost from this. The second reason is everyone that relies on electricity to remain alive / healthy. Generators typically last a few hours especially the ones at home and that's only if they have a generator. The third reason is that there's no need to simulate this. They already have the data from storms whenever a city goes dark for a few hours to days at a time. Lastly, the legalities involving this would be extreme and impossible to get away with. The feds would get sued very quickly and they would lose without a doubt.

There will not be a power grid shut down because it simply does not make sense to have one, especially at the time of year when people need electricity the most. A LOT of people would die, and even more would suffer.

I think that someone knows something the rest dont.
Disarm all nuclear weapons now if a threat to energy grid is imminent. Would a power cut possibly lead to an accidental detonation or firing sequence?

Problem with diesel is that fuel collects water and goes stale or gums up engine

Fuel has to be flused and replaced every few months

After Hurricanes last few years in this area ((New Jersey) many people invested in backup generators which run
om natural gas or propane

Don't have problems with fuel going bad and clogging up system


There are fuel stabilizers that address that problem.
STA-BIL® Fuel Stabilizer is America’s top selling fuel stabilizer. Stored fuel can go bad in as little as 30-60 days causing gum, varnish and corrosion to build up in the fuel lines and engine. STA-BIL® Fuel Stabilizer keeps fuel fresh for up to 12 months during storage, eliminating the need to drain fuel. Ensures quick, easy starts after storage. Effective in all gasoline, including Ethanol blends.

This is not meant to advertise a particular product or brand but to show, from a preppers POV, that one can prepare for these contingencies. (Other brands are available. I have no preference.) I don't know of any power outage that has gone on longer than 30 days so such items might not even be needed but it's good to know they're available.

Because of issues with fuel storage (tank leaks and high cost to clean up) and with fuel stability most
backup generators in this area are natural gas powered, including police station and fire houses

They banned shooting irons in New York because "think of the squirrels".

They are not going to be turning off power and services. The drill is just an administrative type thing to test "how they would react"

Their going to pretend the powers out and follow their procedures and test how it plays out.

If anyone thinks their going to kill the entire nations power grid as a test is crazy.

""The drill is just an administrative type thing to test "how they would react"""

Uh Huh.

And who would'a thought .............



On September 11, 2001, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) was involved in an ongoing operation which involved deploying fighter aircraft to northwestern North America. The US Military and NORAD had also planned to conduct several military exercises and a drill was being held by the National Reconnaissance Office, a Department of Defense agency. The operations, exercises and drills were all canceled following the September 11 attacks.

Operation Northern Vigilance, was a NORAD operation which involved deploying fighter aircraft to locations in Alaska and Northern Canada.[1] The operation was a response to a Russian exercise, in which long-range bombers were dispatched to Russia's high north. The operation was one part simulation, one part real world. It was immediately called off after NORAD received word from NEADS that the Federal Aviation Administration had evidence of a hijacking. All simulated information (so called "injects") were purged from computer screens at NORAD headquarters in Colorado. On receiving news of the attacks, the Russians promptly canceled their exercise as well..............

United States government operations and exercises on September 11, 2001

Hmmm.

Conspiracy Hat On:

The US goes ahead with Syrian strike,
Then Russia gets involved and we become in an all out "staged" fight
Somehow a nuke gets detonated over the US and the EMP is distributed
causing a complete blackout of the US....then the Obamaclan puts in place
his DHS military and begins martial law due to the shut down of all our grids.

All coinciding with the "Drill"
