The National Interest columnist Siddhartha Kazi, in one of his latest articles, stated that USA power can be lost in a few hours.

According to him, for this it is necessary to disable high-voltage transformers.

“If only nine of those thirty transformers went off during peak power demand, the result could be a coast-to-coast blackout,” he said.

Kazi noted that the restoration of these transformers can take up to two years, since there are no reliable suppliers in the States and the country buys them in South Korea and Germany.
