As summer draws to a close, the importance of reliable backup power solutions becomes ever more evident. The U.S. has experienced a significant number of widespread weather-related events, including severe storms and extreme heat that have led to multiple power outages which led to several disruptions for homeowners. Additionally, the hurricane forecast took a turn for the worse as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has recently increased the likelihood of an ‘above-normal’ Atlantic hurricane season due to record-warm sea surface temperatures.
The combination of this reality has underscored the critical importance of having backup power solutions in place to ensure limited interruption to essential at home activities.
Rising Frequency of Extreme Weather Events: Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and severe due to factors such as climate change and urbanization. Coastal regions are particularly vulnerable to hurricanes and storm surges, while areas prone to wildfires are facing increased risks as temperatures rise and droughts become more common.
Impact on Power Infrastructure: Extreme weather events can wreak havoc on power infrastructure, leading to widespread outages. High winds, flooding, and falling debris can damage power lines and substations, disrupting the supply of electricity to communities.
Residential Importance: The reliance on electricity has grown exponentially in modern society, affecting every activity within the home. In homes, backup power solutions are crucial to maintain essential daily functions and ensure the wellbeing of loved ones during outages.
