There are many occasions presented to us throughout the year where having a reliable and renewable backup power solution is not only prudent but necessary.  From storms in the winter that bring down power lines, to summer brownouts and blackouts, our public power systems can suddenly become unavailable for hours -- sometimes even days and weeks.  Hurrincane Sandy and the recent serious of storms on the West Coast are just a few examples of where power outages have effected large segments of the US. 

We encourage you to evaluate your current energy usage and determine what the critical functions you need power are and develop a strategy for providing emergency backup power to meet those needs. Review the WSID Guide for a discussion of Power, Heating, and Communications and the other areas to look at in emergency situations where a lack of power might leave you unacceptably vulnerable. 

We hope you continue to find these offers on essential resiliency items a welcome addition to the news and other articles on the site. We look forward to providing updates to the WSID Guide and Series in the coming year.  

cheers,
Jason

What Should I Do?

Building Resiliency with GoalZero

A portable solar setup
Friday, November 16, 2012, 8:16 PM

Overview

As a resident of the coastal Pacific Northwest, I set out to set up a backup power source never thinking I’d be a candidate to discuss the pros and cons of such a setup. After receiving a strong reference from Jason W., I contacted Denis Korn of “Prepare Direct”. I checked his products and blog and came across the Extreme 350 Base Camp kit manufactured by GoalZero. Because of my particular situation (living in a fairly urban environment, in the PNW) I didn’t want to purchase a large system that was going to be tied to the grid for several reasons:

  1. I didn’t think it’d generate enough energy to make a difference.
  2. A larger system would be a ‘permanent’ addition to my home, which I don’t intend to stay in for long.
  3. If I ever had to leave quickly, I wanted to be able to take a “renewable” energy source with me.
