Homeland Security Idle on 2008 EMP Threat: “Gov’t Dysfunction Preventing … Protecting Ourselves”

The potential threat of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) has officially captured the attention of politicians in Washington, who are using it as an issue to drive debate about possible military threats and infrastructure overhauls.

The catastrophe that could come from an EMP would be overwhelming and devastating to the infrastructure that hundreds of millions depend upon, yet Homeland Security has done absolutely nothing to harden the grid or take basic precautions since it was warned in a 2008 report. According to the Washington Free Beacon:

The Department of Homeland Security has failed to address a single recommendation from a 2008 Critical National Infrastructures report to assess the threat of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks and solar storms

“We’ve allowed government dysfunction to prevent us from doing even the most basic things to protect ourselves,” said Chairman Ron Johnson (R., Wis.)…

[…]

“I emphasize that a once-per-century event could occur next week. It has a probability of 10 percent of occurring in the next 10 years, a time in which we can and should take measures to reduce and essentially eliminate its impact on the bulk power system of the United States,” said Dr. Richard Garwin of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center.

You can read the 2008 Critical Infrastructures Report: Report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack here in PDF.

According to experts, the minimum to protect American power grids from EMP would involve no more than a few hundred substations that could be hardened for “an estimated $100,000 per station” – a paltry sum compared to to other technological costs born by Homeland Security, law enforcement and military agencies. Of course, IBM stands to gain from new grid infrastructure, as many “smart grid” firms share common plans with EMP resilient proposals, both of which favor overhauling the aging grid designed in the days of Tesla and Edison.

But EMP threats have relevancy again with Iran as a hot button issue and status as worst nightmare for certain circles.

The renewed focus on Iran amid controversial negotiations from the Obama White House have brought forward new waves of fear about Iran gaining a nuke… and using it to set off an EMP holocaust over the United States.

The scenario isn’t impossible and poses real threats, but has little to do with Iran as a hostile actor. Nonetheless, your everyday war hawk propaganda has been weaving it into the narrative. The Daily Reporter writes:

According to Dr. Forstchen, a nuclear bomb possessed by Iran would compromise the safety of Israel and America. An even more serious scenario would be for Iran to detonate an EMP Bomb in the air over Israel or America with a nuclear bomb, from a cargo container ship.

Experts who are “very alarmed and scared” about this, include James Woolsey, a former CIA Director; Major Ed Dames, former head instructor for remote viewing at the Pentagon; and Dr. William Forstchen, an expert in military history. A growing number of military and civilian experts are warning about a potential EMP Bomb attack; while our news media and government remains silent.

Experts claim that the blast from a single attack would last only a millionth of a second, but could potentially kill nine out of 10 Americans within 12 months, since a major EMP Bomb would destroy our American electrical grid and electronics…

That threat is very much on the mind of those who helped write, or who have supported the SHIELD Act, House legislation introduced to address EMP scenarios:

The electromagnetic pulse could result from a high-altitude nuclear detonation, more than 100 kilometers above the ground, launched either by a nuclear warhead or satellite delivery system. The results of an EMP event are drastically different than that of a solar event, and bills introduced to the US House of Representatives, such as the Secure High-voltage Infrastructure for Electricity from Lethal Damage Act or SHIELD Act (H.R. 2417) address this issue.

“Simply finding a way to harden a grid that will, per the EMP Commission, still likely come down … because there are no protections anywhere else, doesn’t seem like the best focus of our energy and time. We want to focus on [the] recovery scenario for the low likelihood, high-impact events like an EMP, which we see as distinctively different as a GMD,” Bridgette Bourge, an official at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, said in her testimony. (source)

With all those who stand to gain from destruction, mayhem and desperation, the door is also wide open for intentional false flag attacks, human error and plain bad luck.

Let’s hope we have a head start before the SHTF, and as always, keep your preps EMP-ready as best as you can manage.

      The only thing gonna get done is by you. Take steps to protect what you own that might be damaged by an EMP or CME. These Bozos in DC are not your friends and will stand by (some probably cheering)waiting for something like this to happen.

      • possee says:

        Exactly PO’d..

        Who in their right mind would ever conceive that DHS has any of our interests at heart?…

        never mind protecting us…

        Govt agencies are only in business to feed the bureaucratic beast..and create scare tactics and boogeymen to justify their ever expanding tentacles…

        Enjoy the day

        • Muddy says:

          Now if Mac would just provide a list of companies that will PROFIT from doing the preventive measures, and a list of companies that will PROFIT from fixing things after the event I can decide where to invest some money. Afterall, has there ever been a government program that involved spending a lot of money that didn’t turn into a cash cow?

          • smooze says:

            Wouldn’t that fluff some feathers?

            “The 50 newest millionaires are all ‘right wing’ patriots that profited off of the govments ineptitude by cashing in on companies that rode in and saved the day after an EMP attack. Just like politicos get the inside scoop, these right wingers were able to invest in the very same companies that the bureaucrats invested in before the EMP attack was launched.”

          • KY Mom says:

            According to an article in the Wall Street Journal last summer…

            “The cost of protecting the national electric grid, according to a 2008 EMP Commission estimate, would be about $2 billion—roughly what the U.S. gives each year in foreign aid to Pakistan.”

            “Our food and water supplies, communications, banking, hospitals, law enforcement, etc., all depend on the electric grid.”

            Yet, they did nothing.

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            I dont see Iran as a threat at all. They have not attacked anybidy in over 150 years. The NWO is fighting them to join their seedy grid at gun point. I would rather auspect a false flag ZOG Attack on the US to dupe us into loosing more freedoms and their increases dependency on their grid.

            I just read an article, sorry no link thatvstated rhe corrupt NOAA is trying to claim that by 2030 that sunshine on the earth will be resuced by 65%. This is a direct attack on those going solar. Every other scientific research lab says that is false. And we will have plenty if sunshine for centuries. Now if the Harp Weather manipulatora get their way… who knows. If you dont submit, we will throw a hurricane at ya. This is not too far fetched or create famine with no rain as a weapon. The psychopaths with the technology are the threat.

            • Illini Warrior says:

              Iran hasn’t been a recognized country for 150 years????

              But, it seems like I remember an embassy incident back in the old days of 1979 that was an out & out attack ….

              Not counting attacking oil tankers … not counting leading terrorist attacks … not counting their war participation in attacking Israel several times ….

              • Nexus789 says:

                Pretty minor compared to the millions that the US has killed and the destruction of multiple countries. The world’s leading terror organisation is the US. It is in a league of its own.

            • Kfilly says:

              Now, these pricks will want to tax the sun. Why do they care if solar power is diminished? If I am was to be living off grid, what does it matter if I get less power through those means? Oh, I forgot. It’s all about control.

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            If I had an extra $100K laying around I would buy up solar pannels, controllers, inverters and deep cycle batteries. With a 10 year life. Sell them after an EMP.

            Also to help protect your house hold electronics, shut them off amd drain the capacitors. If you think an EMP is coming or solar flare Pull the main switch in your house’s electrical fuse box, to avoid blowing your house up due to electrical surges. You cannot beat a house fire that doubles in size every minute. ~WWTI

        • The Old Coach says:

          Dittos. Nothing will be done until Congress works out which contractors will benefit.

          BTW the Allied did some nasty things to Germany’s grid during WW2, with nary a nuclear EMP bomb in sight.

          And there’s ways to cripple ours with WW1 technology. (I ain’t sayin’ how on a public forum.)

          • PO'd Patriot says:

            • BigB says:

              I think our enemies both foreign and domestic have a pretty good idea on how to cripple our infrastructure at this point. But what would be the advantage?

Do a lot of folks set up daily or weekly schedules that they are on the airwaves? Would be a nice way for shtfplan folks to have a backup comms if and when it all goes down…

          • Douche Bigaho says:

            Didn’t you get the memo? Congress does not work for america, they work solely for israel. It should be obvious to everyone by now.

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            The first thing our military does when it attacks a nation is to take out all electronics, communucations and radar before they bring in the heavy bombers to level the joint.. you can bet they also have this set-up option for Martial law blowing up our electronics and short wave radios. They don’t want anybody posting videos on Youtube of the destruction and genocide Then they issue all of us hacked Obama Phones to spy on us.

      • Braveheart says:

        PO’d Patriot, spot on. I personally witnessed how they handled Katrina which was deliberate. NEVER EVER DEPEND ON GOVERNMENT FOR ANYTHING. If you don’t know how to do for yourself, you’re screwed.

      • DevilMayCry says:

        This is about money, nothing else. Specifically it is about
        preventing future competition from “over-night” success
        stories bootstrapping their own energy companies…
        By selling solar energy TO the grid.

        This is about keeping us trapped as consumers. This is about limiting options and opportunities. That is all.

        Mark these words. After the false narrative fever pitch is strong enough, you’ll see these protections put in place – and then you’ll see stories about solar homes requiring smart meters so they dont “back propagate” into a grid thats “not designed for that.” New license requirements for energy generation after inevitably shitty and botched emp-proofing goes down (blamed on people selling electricity). Arguments created by internet trolls, and a fake impression of popular support for the notion that “energy generation is a privilege not a right.” Calls for outright bans because “terrorists could use solar/wind to overload the network” and a reality tv show where unlicensed people are raided by militarized police, treated like crooks, and compared to meth lab operators.

        Did I about hit the nail?

          The weakening of America…

          In less than a generation, our society has turned AWAY from centuries of common sense and the values of being independent, self-reliant, prepared and hard working.

          The weakening of America has been a multipronged effort – to weaken spiritually, morally, intellectually and physically. Our current society is a reflection of these changes.

          Those ‘shaping’ America, have successfully encouraged most citizens to become DEPENDENT on … the government, medications, stores open 24/7, etc.

          “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
          –Abraham Lincoln

          You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
          You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
          You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
          You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
          You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
          You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
          -William J. H. Boetcker

          -Weakening the basic American institutions

          -Encouraging promiscuity and easy divorce,
          -Getting control of the schools
          -Discrediting the Constitution

      • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

        I read this entire EMP Report cover to cover when it first come out. The main points to me were that the cascading grid will collapse like dominos due to power surges, the large transformers that blow will take a 2 year lead time to build and replace. A solar flare could happen at anytime. So try to prep for at least 2 years of preps like canned and non parishable food. And you are going to need to protect that from the Generations of Free Shit Army, with high powdered security. 9, 45, 556, 762, 308, and eppe’ s .22.
        A man triggered EMP weapon is already in US hands. They can fly over an targeted area flip the switch and and send the beam down to blow all your electronics apart. So get your faraday cages set up now and get backups to backups. Any simple metal trash can (Cheaper at feed stores) with a tight lid and line the insides with cardboard so no components touch the metal can. ~WTTI

      Wallstreet is holding back the costs to harden our electric grid. Complacency is another problem.

      Going 5mths now from Bugging out to raw land to create a liveable life style. Like an EMP, First 2 months was living in the 1800’s. Prep with lots of bug spray and insect netting. There is no A/C so enjoy the breeze behind good netting. That 4 am mosquito buzzing your head will destroy a good nights sleep. You need to perform every day as you will again use every muscle in your body. Prep with what I call Vitamin A- for Advil pills – reduces muscle inflamation and stress and quicker recovery. Have at least 5 pair of leather gloves, the woods will rip up your hands fast clearing brush to set up camp. I swap out wet for dry gloves as you will sweat a gallon of water a day. Prep with Silver Colloid- kills bacteria. I applied that to all skin scratches, cuts and insect bites that spread bacteria like Tics, which you need to keep up your body hygene. Check for tics daily and shake out your sleeping bag too a few times a day for hidy creatures. I went solo, so the term Suck it up and move forward and reward your self for accomplishments. I like a Cigar and glass of Cabernet at the end if the day and dusk when the real nightime game shows come on. Have as neighbors on the BOL property- 2 Bucks, one is an 8 pointer, spike buck and a Preggo Doe which just gave birth. Hope to see fawns soon. The other flock is 15 wild Turkey 3 adult hens and the chicks are almost adult size.

      In a full EMP imagine the oeace and quiet of the planet.

    EMP within WDC?? Certainly WDC will be insulated from any discomfort.

  2. Asshat says:

    2008 was 7 years ago the grid has been upgraded where I’m at. Solar systems are being built at a rapid pace. They are not worried about us little people. My plans are not built on having electronics if I do great if not I will deal with it. People talk about the past too much base your plans on self reliance not what might happen. You will be fine.

    • Archivist says:

      There have been no upgrades on anything where I’m at. The pole in front of my house is split and was marked for replacement. They didn’t replace it. The other day they strapped a piece of metal on it as a temporary fix. It will go down in the next storm.

      In some places around here, the telephone poles are as bowed as chair rockers, and have been that way for many years. There was a pole down the road that was clipped off by a car. The shortened pole was propped up and left that way for many weeks until it was finally replaced.

      I don’t expect anything to change around here. EMP will take it all away for certain.

      My plans have nothing to do with electricity or electronics either, my feeling is that no matter what the prices will climb so high here most folks just wont be able to afford it including yours truly!
      Water storage and catchment
      Wood for fuel for cooking etc
      Small scale solar for a lift pump for our gravity fed system,
      Can grow most of the food we need, luckily have the space,
      But definitely as low tech and low input as possible.

  5. taxn2poverty says:

    No one can really grasp just how really bad things will be without electricity. Furthermore, without electricity, how do you rebuild a society that gets its very being from electricity. When the grid goes down, and it will, there is no coming back, ever. This optimistic guesstimation that 90% of the people will be dead in 12 months is way off base. 90% will be dead in 30 days from drinking bad water. Typhoid is very indiscriminate and after one month of no water sanitation/purification the bloated bodies by the hundreds of millions, that’s right, hundreds of millions, will be everywhere. The best advice to be given to anyone is to have at least 1000 gallons of clean drinking water stored per person and lots of life straws and any other water purification system, great or small, that you can get your hands on. Think water, drinking water, or else you are dead. God bless and prepare now.

    Well I met with the scientist yesterday a d had one HELL of a meeting. Since its Monday morning I won’t be able to comment just yet. However I will give you all a hint, we are in really deep, deep,deep horse sh…t. The economy is really going to crash after September and Nibiru is the nasty surprise. Monday mornings are always busy as heck, give me some time I will comment.
    For the time being see the allnewspipeline.com article in what just happened in Puerto Rico. Then listen to what David Hodges just posted on his website about a martial law showdown in El Salvador on his second article, with a audio about a military attack on the country and martial law declared as the soldiers take over EL Salvador and massacre off the populous. I nearly crapped My pants listening to that..

    • If indeed Nibiru is real. I then have to question why TPTB would initiate Martial Law, regardless of country and origin.
      This would make no sense. If Nibiru itself was going to have cataclysm effects onto the World, why bother with pre-arranging troops?
      It would seem these people would take precautions of hunkering down, instead of strategically putting troops into harms way.

      The reality to me is. Nibiru does not exist or if it does, it will not directly effect Earth. There’s an agenda for sure, and I don’t see Nibiru playing any part of it.

    • taxn2poverty says:

      Can’t argue that something is coming soon. September for sure, but this week is the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, so the ptb may have a little false flag to get the ball rolling. Word of caution thought, Dave Hodges has a very dismal track record of getting things right. Nice guy, but he tried to make things happen…

    More “control” scheduled to be released today.

    Better have plenty of warm clothing stocked up, because the price of electricity is going to increase.

    What you need to know about Obama’s biggest global warming move yet — the Clean Power Plan

    “On Monday (August 3), the Post has learned, the Obama administration plans to release the finalized “Clean Power Plan,” the president’s flagship policy to combat global warming. The plan is aimed at the electricity sector, which generates the largest single slice of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions — 31 percent of them.

    The final rule, which officials say will be part of a major new climate push by the president, is likely to both thrill environmental groups and pique industry — it seeks to achieve even deeper cuts than the 2014 proposed plan, which itself was already controversial.”

    What is the Clean Power Plan?
    “The Clean Power Plan is a regulation advanced by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act that would cut carbon dioxide emissions from U.S. power plants 32 percent below their 2005 levels by the year 2030.

    The rule works by requiring states to make their own cuts — each state is given a different emissions reduction goal under the plan and will have various options for hitting its target.”

    In his book, “Propaganda,” Bernays writes:

    “Those who manipulate the unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested largely by men we have never heard of.

    In almost every act of our lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business or in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.”

    Why would any real human being want to protect a collapsing Corporatist Globalist controlled Orwellian Fascist Police State shithole from anything??? The sooner the fascist Corporatist controlled evil vile disgusting genocidal shithole of the world collapses the better off all real humans will be. An EMP that catches the fascist Globalist NWO evil monster filth controlling the shithole of Murica off guard is probably the only hope real humans have to stop the Stasi fascist Orwellian tyrannical monsters controlling the most evil vile dangerous criminal genocidal fascist government the world has ever seen.

      Ron Ahrens… Truth to the max! I admire how you stay on course time after time, it’s great! The Department of Homeland Security, a monument to Fascism and police brutality with their hastily enacted gestapo manuscript no lawmaker actually read, proving they are all in on covering the crime of the century 9-11. DHS only protects the treasonous criminals at the top, The other 300 million+ American’s are all meaningless in the bigger picture. This government and the foreigners who run it are all certified psychopaths.

      • Ron Ahrens says:

        The fascist NWO evil monster shit stains controlling this Orwellian Fascist Police State nightmare are on a steady course to poison, dumbed down, murder, and enslave all of humanity. Real brave humans like me will follow these psychopathic genocidal Corporatist Fascist Globalist filth to our last days bearing witness to their TREASON, MURDER, and CRIMES AGAINST ALL HUMANITY, and we will not rest until they are brought to trial and justice for their heinous evil barbaric crimes.

    Another sign of global economic slowdown…

    Something Just Snapped: Container Freight Rates From Asia To Europe Crash 23% In One Week

    “It appears that the recent spike in shipping rates was analogous to the dead cat bounce in crude oil prices: a speculator-driven anticipation for a sustainable rebound that never took place.

    And now, just like with crude prices, it is all crashing down…. again.

    According to Reuters, shipping freight rates for transporting containers from ports in Asia to Northern Europe dropped 22.8 per cent to $400 per 20-foot container (TEU) in the week ended last Friday, data from the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index showed.”

    “Should the dead cat bounce in shipping rates indeed be over, and if the accelerate slide continues at the current pace, not only will shippers mothball key transit lanes, but the biggest concern for global economy, the unprecedented slowdown in world trade volumes, which we flagged a week ago, will be not only confirmed but is likely to unleash yet another global recession.”

      USA bound…that makes sense. Obama has set up a special refugee parole program. They don’t even have to travel to the USA.

      Report: Deported Immigrations to Be Flown Back into USA – paid for by Taxpayer Money

      “They can also receive a wide variety of federal benefits once they arrive.

      In 2014, unaccompanied alien “children” from Central America walked across America’s southern border in droves. This year, the U.S. government will PAY for unaccompanied alien children to be flown into the country, even if they were convicted of a FELONY, and furnish them with federal benefits to boot.

      It sounds outlandish, so how is it happening? It’s called the In-Country Refugee/Parole Program for Central American Minors, and the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security introduced it on November 14, 2014.”

        Just yesterday I came across an article that said [obama releases 65,000+ criminal illegals in 2014 back into society]

        The influx of mass immigration is beyond out of control, and yet no Politicians are fighting this Administration over it.
        They are all guilty, even the one’s who talk a good game. Any honest politician would remove themselves asap from this rogue outfit of fascism.
        People can defend, fight, and try and restore the Republic back to it’s foundations. Not me, not anymore, I can’t fight what I don’t recognize as a nation. It’s a fantasy fools pipe dream to think this country could be great again.
        Fight for yourselves, don’t bother fighting for a country where the people of power want nothing better to do with you, but kill you.

        Trump says he’s going to deport all illegals. They are commies so he might be onto something.

    Here’s a real simple solution, at least to the ‘Grid Hacking’ problem.

    How about if they don’t connect any computers that control electrical infrastructure to the internet??? It’s almost as if the government is asking for hackers to hack the power grid. There’s a legitimate reason to have servers that keep track of customer payments, etc, on the internet, but there is absolutely no reason to have the actual infrastructure connected to the internet.

    Any mission critical computer systems should be totally separated from the internet. Not just a firewall, but complete electrical and physical separation. Industrial computers should not be networked at all unless it’s absolutely necessary to their function, which is unlikely, and then only over physically secure private networks.

    Power companies could easily set-up private networks for the infrastructure that has no link to the internet at all. There is no need for people to be able to browse the web or check email on a computer used to control infrastructure… really, just another excuse to fear monger over terrorism and justify more government funding.

    It is sheer lunacy for critical infrastructure to be connected to the internet. Hint… hint… the grid worked fine for over a hundred years without being connected to the internet.

    Off Topic but, in the 11 red flag article Porto Rico was mentioned. There’s more than meets the eye there.

    1.               Is the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) an organization within the U.S. Department of the Treasury?

    Answer: No. The IRS is not an organization within the United States Department of the Treasury. The U.S. Department of the Treasury was organized by statutes now codified in Title 31 of the United States Code, abbreviated “31 U.S.C.” The only mention of the IRS anywhere in 31 U.S.C. §§ 301‑310 is an authorization for the President to appoint an Assistant General Counsel in the U.S. Department of the Treasury to be the Chief Counsel for the IRS. See 31 U.S.C. 301(f)(2).

    At footnote 23 in the case of Chrysler Corp. v. Brown, 441 U.S. 281 (1979), the U.S. Supreme Court admitted that no organic Act for the IRS could be found, after they searched for such an Act all the way back to the Civil War, which ended in the year 1865 A.D. The Guarantee Clause in the U.S. Constitution guarantees the Rule of Law to all Americans (we are to be governed by Law and not by arbitrary bureaucrats). See Article IV, Section 4. Since there was no organic Act creating it, IRS is not a lawful organization.

    2.               If not an organization within the U.S. Department of the Treasury, then what exactly is the IRS?

    Answer: The IRS appears to be a collection agency working for foreign banks and operating out of Puerto Rico under color of the Federal Alcohol Administration (“FAA”). But the FAA was promptly declared unconstitutional inside the 50 States by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of U.S. v. Constantine, 296 U.S. 287 (1935), because Prohibition had already been repealed.

    In 1998, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit identified a second “Secretary of the Treasury” as a man by the name of Manual Díaz-Saldaña. See the definitions of “Secretary” and “Secretary or his delegate” at 27 CFR 26.11 (formerly 27 CFR 250.11), and the published decision in Used Tire International, Inc. v. Manual Díaz-Saldaña, court docket number 97‑2348, September 11, 1998. Both definitions mention Puerto Rico.

    When all the evidence is examined objectively, IRS appears to be a money laundry, extortion racket, and conspiracy to engage in a pattern of racketeering activity, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1951 and 1961 et seq. (“RICO”). Think of Puerto RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act); in other words, it is an organized crime syndicate operating under false and fraudulent pretenses. See also the Sherman Act and the Lanham Act.

      As I mentioned above you Enemy of the State.
      Basically I’m paraphrasing, but America is fucked.
      Too many dumb downed people, and not enough free thinkers.
      Sad to say, there is nothing salvageable of this nation.
      Bad enough the government has gone rogue, but its even worse when the majority of people in this country don’t even care.

      Like I said, fight for yourself and others that are like you.
      Everybody else can go straight to hell. Can’t help those who choose not to see the reality that is in front of them.
      The likes of Reality Show Fanatics and Sports enthusiast will suffer the most. They chose entertainment over reality. Unfortunately for these people, reality is going to win them over.

      Blankone. My solar installer said the the weak link in a solar system by an EMP would be the controller. That controlls the amount of power flow to charge the batteries. I now have an extra identical controller stuffed in a faraday cage just in case.
