On Apr 28-29, Texas state Senator Bob Hall is hosting the “Texas Grid Security Summit” to discuss threats and preparedness for the Texas electric grid.

One big thing missing? The great threat to all of us that the grid is being used to power a massive NSA data center right in the heart of Texas.

The threat posed to our liberty by the NSA is very real.

The Texas Cryptologic Center is built on the grounds of a massive a former Sony warehouse, just down the road from a new Microsoft data center. The NSA waited to confirm Microsoft’s opening there before leasing the property from Corporate Office Properties Trust.

A major part of the decision for the location was also the independent power grid in Texas, again confirming NSA’s very real concern about access to power. The electricity is provided by CPS Energy, the United States’ largest municipally owned utility company, with combined natural gas and electric service.

It appears that water will be as well.

NSA Gets power from the state of Texas, but Texas can shut it down. Model legislation is available here (pdf).
