The truly paranoid have UPSes and generators - how could the utilities not
be part of the Conspiracy? (That, and the occasional natural disaster
shouldn't be allowed to spoil one's uptime.)

low-voltage, but getting hit by a bomb could be assumed to stuff things
up... and these aren't going to be aimed at server rooms.
