Thank You for Making the Inaugural Alabama Power Grid Defense Conference a Success!


We will be updating our websites to capture the summaries from the conference, and continued to post status and information related to power grid defense in Alabama and across the country. If you are in Alabama and would like to join our effort, please drop us an email. Otherwise, please look up your state's power grid defense organizations and find out more about how you can help to "Save the Grid. Safe the Future!"

Our Power Grid is in Peril. The Grid is our Nation's Weakest Link


Cyber attacks, sabotage, geomagnetic super-storms (coronal mass ejections (CME) from the sun, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from the high-altitude detonation of a nuclear weapon pose severe threats to our electric power grid. The Congressional EMP Commission warned that up to 9 of 10 Americans could die from starvation and societal collapse from a nationwide blackout lasting one year.

That's not the worst of it: Decades of spent fuel rods from 200+ US nuclear reactors (not counting military units) are stored in huge cooling pools. Without power to keep the spent fuel pools covered with water, the water in the spent fuel pools may boil off, resulting in radioactive elements being released into the atmosphere that could be worst than that of several full-scale nuclear wars according to some.

Help Us Secure Our Power Grid

The purpose of Power Grid Defense Committee (PGDC) Alabama is to initiate activities to secure the Alabama power grid from natural and man-made threats. We are taking this step to formulate a plan of actions as both the state and federal government is doing almost nothing to address one of the greatest threat to life in case of catastrophic power grid loss. We seek Alabama to join the small handful of states that have already decided to harden their own power grids, spread this to other states, and use this as leverage to seek federal activities to secure the grid nationally. We intend to appeal to the federal government in parallel with the local effort, and work with the State to formulate contingency planning or risk mitigation plans. First we must educate the public, the industry, and public officials. That is planned for the first day of our Inaugural Power Grid Defense Conference. The second day will be for key individuals to hammer out a plan of action.

Huntsville is well poised to be a key community leading this effort due to our foundation in defense and space programs that will provides a well of expertise and the credibility needed to back this cause. Please consider attending, donate and/or volunteer to help us secure our future. See menu on the right.
