NewsNation has obtained documents on 6 different incidents where power substations were broken into and shutdown for periods of time. These all happened in the month of September. These are the first reports of these incidents to the pull we are aware of.
These were all Duke Energy properties. Here is their statement:
We can’t comment on any ongoing legal proceedings or investigations. However, given the nature and scale of our operations, we – alongside federal, state and local law enforcement and security officials and industry partners – are continuously assessing and evolving our measures to protect our critical infrastructure. That partnership includes helping bring anyone, who damages our system, to justice.
