Let’s face it, our power grid is unreliable.  In the face of disaster, it’s almost inevitably the first system of support we lose.  Even with relatively minor incidents such as snow storms or moderate wind, the electricity goes out, leaving us in the dark, with no refrigeration, heat, or working stove to cook on.  So how many of us have truly considered the impact of an extended power failure?  There are several options that can give us varying degrees of power for varying lengths of time, but how do you decide on what option to choose? The amount of power that we need depends greatly on what we can expect to happen as well as for how long.  This week, we’ll take a look at as many options as we can for different scenarios.  Are solar panels and batteries the way to go?  Perhaps a generator would be a better option, but then again, how big and running on what fuel.  How can we reduce our electrical needs during an outage that lasts days, months, or even years?  I’ll give you a few options to deal with heat, cooking, light, and refrigeration issues that can help you through the dark days of a powerless world.
