Rising number of severe weather events driving need for power outage plans
Generac Power Systems is observing National Preparedness Month in September by reminding people to plan ahead for power outages, as nationwide weather trends indicate a rising threat of power loss.
The growing impact of extreme weather has resulted in 15 billion-dollar weather disasters so far in 2023, the highest number recorded since 1980 during the same time period. Severe weather events can bring with them the dangerous possibility of power outages, leaving many households without essential access to electricity.
Power outages pose immense risk to safety and comfort, making backup power a cornerstone of a well thought out preparedness plan. Proactively planning for outages, instead of simply reacting in an emergency, is the best way to assure home and family comfort amid severe weather.
During National Preparedness Month, Generac encourages people to review their household power needs, identify the backup power solution that will best meet the demands of their home, and practice safely using their backup power source.
Generac makes backup power sources for any budget and living situation, from small inverter generators and portable power stations to whole home generators:
In addition to early preparation, homeowners and business owners should stay informed of local power outages. Generac’s free tool Power Outage Central aggregates utility outage data nationwide into a single, easy-to-use interface, making it simple to see the impacts of power outages on a local and statewide scale in near real time.
