According to a report by Politico, the United States is experiencing a troubling increase in attacks targeting power infrastructure. The first three months of 2023 saw a significant rise in power grid attacks compared to the same period in 2022, with the number of incidents doubling.

Insider revealed that right-wing extremism, particularly linked to neo-Nazi groups that subscribe to the ideology of "accelerationism," has been identified as a significant factor driving these attacks. This belief in accelerationism propels these groups to target power grids as they view such destabilizing acts as a means to incite a race war.

The surge in power grid attacks during election seasons, as highlighted by Manny Cancel from the North American Electric Reliability Corp, raises concerns about a potential political agenda behind these incidents. Both physical and cyber attacks have been directed at power grids in recent years, prompting warnings from the FBI for heightened vigilance among power executives to counter these threats.
