Generators a New Way of Life in California
Once, generators were considered a luxury item. They were used for camping trips, and on rare occasions, a minor power outage. Recently, our once reliable power source has now become a steady source of worry for homeowners as well as business owners. The California power grid is in big trouble. Several of the major power providers have either filed or declared bankruptcy, and that means a new way of living in California. This will mean scheduled rolling blackouts and the new scheduled “Public Safety Power Shut-Offs”. These power outages will cause many inconveniences as well as financial burdens.
The new California lifestyle has added a Generator Back-Up Power Supply as a normal part of homeownership. For the average household, not having a steady source of power is not an option. Power outages over eight hours can start the food spoilage cycle, which can cost the average family $500 to $2,500 in food losses. Also, the loss of Wi-Fi can create unsafe conditions, and not having a satellite link, and communications link can keep you in the dark. When wildfires hit your area, mandatory evacuations become more difficult, and the simple act of opening your garage door can be quite stressful. Your 24/7 standby generator that will automatically start within 30 seconds of a power outage can be a life saving device.
Now for the good news, the new generation of generators are here and very affordable. They offer automatic operation, which means you don’t have to be there to turn them on, they have a constant fuel source that runs on your existing natural gas or LP fuel supply. They are powered directly to your home, which eliminates the messy extension cords; and they can be managed using your smartphone, tablet, or a PC. When grouped with your solar panel system, they can take the place of expensive solar battery backup systems.
