Solar flares should be more of a concern than an EMP.

The countries entire electrical grid needs upgraded and domes placed over each electrical power station.

And funding would come from where? It would be such a huge undertaking that power would have to be interrupted for hundreds of thousands if not millions at a time.

"And funding would come from where?"

The last time I checked, everyone pays an electric bill. Simply place a fee on the bill, say a grid protection fee or what have you. Once the grid is upgraded the fee could be dropped.

It SHOULD be done before It's too late...

"It would be such a huge undertaking that power would have to be interrupted for hundreds of thousands if not millions at a time."

It would be well worth it, as I said before It's too late. It certainly would be a mess to say the least for the grid to be taken down for years.
As a matter of fact, there would be no need to disconnect the grid when you're simply placing domes over the stations.

Why ALL important integrated circuits aren't protected by a Faraday shield is ridiculous. Every vehicle should have one too.

The Earth's magnetic field is weakening. It's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN. There will be solar activity that will send us back to the stone age. No electricity and satellites = no water, sewer, gas, food in stores, etc.
