The Advantages of Backup Power

Hard to believe that we are now in August; we have gone past the longest day of the year and are now heading towards Christmas.... I hear a few faint hearted cries of "Noooo", but its coming fast and all we can do is pray for a few more warm'ish days before Autumn falls into play.

Over the past couple of months a few of the local Parishes have been dealt the "Blackout" blow of Powercuts.  
 
Back in June 2016 the pretty Town of Nailsworth suffered, when a staggering 1,936 customers in the Forest Green area were without any power for several hours.
 
Then in July the picturesque village of Chalford were struck powerless leaving 897 homes in rising temperatures and defrosting Freezers and warmed Fridges.  The remaining 8 properties had to resolve to Generator Power till their mains supply was fixed.  
 
Nearly 200 customers on the Bath Road Trading Est and Lightpill area lost all Power towards the end of July, which could of proved a nightmare for businesses situated there.
 
As we rolled into August, Minchinhampton and Nailsworth again are thrown back to a time of no electric power, if for only an hour or so.
 
Just like MANY other Hamlets, Villages, Towns and Cities here in the UK, Stroud has been relatively lucky, so far!  With officials warning us since 2008 that we are currently in a time where the whole country could suffer major Blackouts.  This is not far reached or way out there, you only need to ask other countries where powercuts refer more to a change in government structure as they endure Rolling Blackouts or Load Shedding for hours and hours, sometimes Days!
 
So, what would you do if the power went off? Have you watched the "What if" documentary on a cyber attack in the UK - here's a link. https://youtu.be/xSlyVeUT78w 
 
Now ask yourself why are they putting this info out there if there is not a niggling worry about it happening in the future!
 
Nuclear Power stations have been closing in the UK over the past few years and whilst we need the power the thought of Fukushima lingers strong on peoples minds; many swinging more towards Green Energy using solar panels, wind and water power as an alternative power means.  
 
With bigger fish to fry let's think about those pesky EMP attacks.  Whilst the UK is in some sort of preparedness for a Solar EMP, our infrastructures would fry if North Korea or Russia blow up a Nuclear bomb in space!  With all the terror attacks happening all over the world and rumours of WW111, maybe its time to think like our Grandparents and prepare for the future.  Take a look at the following links and then do your own research.
 
 
 
Many people will simply dismiss certain information pronouncing the information Giver as Bat S**t Crazy; that is their choice, but for those people remember you are only 9 meals away from Anarchy!
 
If you have NO Power your Fridges and Freezers will start to defrost and if you are unable to cook it all and re-store, you will left with a smelly mess.  Have you ever wondered how long the food in your cupboards would last even if you had to ration it along with water? Or what it was like to live a few hundred years ago in a time before all of your electronic gizmos and the Industrial Revolution!  Hold on tight people it maybe on the horizon - Are you Ready. Are you Prepared?

Invest in Backup Power

What is Backup Power?  "It is an electric Generator or a Bank of Batteries, that can provide adequate power to operate critical equipment until commercial power is restored".
 
A fine link by Jerry Emanuelson explains the usefulness of an Emergency Portable and Standby Generator
