Irish power utility EirGrid sustained a security breach earlier this year, apparently a man-in-the-middle attack through Vodafone’s Direct Internet Access service based in Shotton, Wales. It was a data collection operation, not an attack on power distribution itself, but the incident is attributed to an unspecified "state-sponsored hacker," and it's worth noting that attacks on Ukraine's power grid were preceded by collection.
Other notes on the power grid include exposure of Texas infrastructure data through a misconfigured server, and a research study on the cascade effects a successful attack on solar power installations could have on the grid as a whole.
