They will practice for a crisis unlike anything the real grid has ever seen, and more than 150 companies and organizations have signed up to participate. "This is different from a hurricane that hits X, Y and Z counties in the Southeast and they have a loss of power for three or four days," said the official in charge of the drill, Brian M. Harrell of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, known as NERC. "We really want to go beyond that."
