How many people are actually prepared for a long term power outage? Some people think they’re prepared because they have a gas generator..but that won’t last long when there’s no gas to be found?
You may be wondering… why won’t there be gas? That’s a good question and one that a lot of people may not think about. During a disaster or crisis, gas is almost always the first thing to run out.
In 2012, Super Storm Sandy, a massive natural disaster, caused a blackout for millions of people along the East Coast of the United States. People made a mad dash to gas stations and waited in line for hours to get gas. There was a huge gas shortage and people couldn’t run their gas powered generators because of that. After the storm, people were left without power for weeks.
When most people think of a power outage they assume that it will only last a few hours or maybe even a day or two. They assume that the power company will be able to get their power back up and running and everything will be fine….but what if that wasn’t the case? What if the power outages lasted weeks, months… or even years?
There is no longer a question of how vulnerable the U.S power grid is. It has been well documented that the grid is extremely outdated leaving it vulnerable to disasters and attacks by terrorist groups and even other countries who want to reek havoc for the American people. The United States has more power outages than any other developed nation.
So, what’s the best way to have a reliable source of backup power? Solar Powered Generators are the best solution for having emergency power. These generators never use gas and they don’t emit harmful fumes.
Also, there are many types of solar generators available to meet the specific needs of you and your family. There are stand alone systems as well as systems that can be connected to the electrical panel in your home. There are even generators available for well pumps so you will never have to be without water when the grid is down.
Unlike gas generators, solar power can provide clean, reliable power for you and your family for days, weeks and even years, and because they have a built in battery bank, these systems can produce power at night as well as during the day.
