An EMP will damage electronics while a Solar Flare will damage the electrical distribution system (Hi th tension power lines/transformers). Either way there are enough people scattered with enough knowledge to generate localized power out of the scraps they can find.
I think the danger lies in a societal collapse whereas everything that is produced by electricity in mass becomes scarce; i.e. commercial farming, commercial water supply, gasoline powered equipment, etc.
if an enemy attacks the US with an enhanced nuke device – the concentrated destruction will be on the same level of a major solar flare – they’ll be looking to knock out protected gear buried in Cheyenne Mountain and elsewhere – it takes power to override the protection … there won’t be much left that’s unprotected or moderately protected …
