Coal-fired power plants, they say, are essential to grid security,
. . . as they are uniquely able to withstand:
. . . . . . cyber attack, or
. . . . . . natural disaster, and continue to generate power on demand.

Far from making the grid more vulnerable to disasters and attacks:
. . . . . . wind,
. . . . . . solar, and
. . . . . . battery storage, are making the grid more resilient.
The military is helping to prove that.

China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea, are developing the ability,
. . . to launch cyberattacks on critical infrastructure,
. . . Russian hackers have already proven capable for breaking into the power grid.
In response, bases are developing microgrids, installing:
. . . . . . wind turbines,
. . . . . . solar panels,
. . . . . . batteries, and
. . . . . . diesel generators,
. . . that can supply power in the event the grid fails.
