How to Prepare for Power Outages?

27 Aug 2023

Every year, August and September mark the peak of hurricane season. In 2021, more than a million people endured extended power outages lasting up to 3-4 weeks due to hurricanes. These outages had an immeasurable impact on numerous families. Consequently, it is crucial to learn how to navigate hurricane season and prepare for the challenges of prolonged power disruptions.

 

Develop an emergency plan

Create a family emergency plan that encompasses communication strategies, designated meeting points, and evacuation routes. Ensure that everyone in your household is familiar with the plan. In addition, acquaint yourself with evacuation routes beforehand and become familiar with local evacuation routes and designated safe locations. This preparation will enable you to swiftly follow these routes when authorities issue an evacuation order.

 

Prepare an emergency kit

Assemble a comprehensive emergency kit containing essential items such as non-perishable food, water, medications, a first aid kit, flashlights, batteries, battery-powered or hand-crank radios, vital documents, cash, and supplies required for children and pets.

 

Prepare enough food

When a refrigerator loses power, it also loses its cooling function, causing the stored food to begin spoiling within a few hours. Therefore, to prepare for a potential power failure, follow these steps:

Start by stocking up on non-perishable foods like dried fruits and other items that don't require refrigeration.

Next, ensure you have a supply of nutritious canned foods, such as canned vegetables and canned meats.

Additionally, it's important to consider the varying eating habits within the family.

Lastly, don't forget to have an ample supply of bottled water on hand.

 

Prepare a backup power supply

Before a prolonged power outage, it's important to prepare a backup power supply for your home to effectively deal with the situation. While options like gas or oil-fired power sources are available, it's crucial to note that they must be operated outdoors due to the significant production of carbon monoxide. Exposure to high concentrations of carbon monoxide can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

 

For a safer and more convenient power solution, consider the Enernova ETA ULTRA Solar Generator. This generator doesn't emit harmful fumes during operation and is designed with mobility in mind, featuring wheels and a trolley for easy movement.

 

The ETA ULTRA boasts an impressive capacity of 2160Wh and a power rating of 2000W, making it suitable for powering over 95% of the devices in your household.

 

Furthermore, when you plug the ETA Ultra into a wall, any devices connected to it receive power from the grid, rather than from the battery. In the event of a power outage, the ETA Ultra automatically switches to battery-powered mode within 30 milliseconds, providing enhanced flexibility and convenience for your energy needs.

 

If you are searching for a backup power source, the ETA ULTRA is the ideal choice. It can be charged in three ways: through AC power, a solar panel, or a car charger. Even during prolonged power outages, the solar panel allows for continuous charging. The solar panel input has a capacity of up to 400W and can be fully charged within 5-7 hours.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
