More than 350 physical or cyber attacks have been recorded in recent years on the nation’s power grid, including nine acts of sabotage on equipment owned by Arizona Public Service Co., according to records obtained by USA Today and The Arizona Republic.

The nine incidents recorded in reports to the U.S. Department of Energy involving APS equipment all took place in 2013-14, and officials at the utility said they were mostly in rural areas.

None is thought to be any more serious than vandalism, said Ted Geisler, APS director of power operations.
