Generators, steam turbines, power transformers at substations and switching panels with automation for these substations are extremely complex and expensive equipment. And often - weighing tens of full-weight tons. In transformers, in addition, special oil. All this equipment is so vulnerable and difficult to repair that no Taras can cope with pliers and a screwdriver. Even the army of Taras will not cope. Here it is only to remove from concrete bases, take away and put in a new one. New is a huge amount of money and it all needs to be produced somewhere else. Roughly speaking, with the right hit, these objects become not only unsuitable for repair, but simply dead.
There is only one way out - voracious diesel and gasoline generators. But you try to power at least a small city from them. I'll see what you can do.
