America’s energy grid is on alert over fears that terrorists could plunge the country into darkness.

One of the country’s top energy officials has told Sky News that an incident last year, which went almost unnoticed, was an alarming demonstration of what terrorists could be planning.

Snipers fired dozens of rounds into an electricity substation in San Jose in California in April, knocking out a number of giant transformers that supply Silicon Valley.

Experts say what was initially recorded by police as vandalism was in fact a meticulously planned and highly professional operation. The attackers even cut underground communication lines before they opened fire.

The fear is that a larger, co-ordinated attack could knock out the grid for weeks or months. Some believe the April attack might have been a dress rehearsal. GO TO SOURCE
