Witnesses testified on strategies to increase the reliability and security of the electric grid from cyber and physical attacks. They also discussed the impact of Environmental Protection Agency greenhouse gases rules on the availability and price of electricity to consumers. Another topic included the attack on California’s San Jose Medcalf transmission station in 2013.
