Your guess is as good as mine but don’t they have controlled outages in California? If so, I would suspect that computers is how they control them.

This type of control can be done without using the public internet. All it takes is the use of a private network which as no internet connectivity. Infiltrating the latter would be far more difficult than getting in through the internet.

I think that if these critical systems were indeed connected to the internet in some way, a hack would have been found and some script kiddie would have brought down the entire US power grid just for kicks.
