Backup Power is the Beginning of Living Off Grid

Installed in 1999 

In recent months, we have seen the plight of millions of families as they struggle to cope without the power grid and this is becoming much more frequent.  What would your life be like without the monopoly of the power company? We are so dependent on electricity…almost everything at your home (and mine) would quit without power.

Look around your home. Your land-line phone, fireplace and pilot lights (on stoves and hot water heaters) are likely gone. Our reliance on electrical power has increased significantly over the past 20 years. So when there is a power failure, we have no communications, no heat and no hot water. Our electricity-intensive society needs backup power more than ever.

I’ve been installing home battery backup power systems on and off for 20 years.

Water - wells are great…but “no power, no water” (for drinking, sanitation, irrigating your garden, etc).  You can’t live without water!



Freezer & fridge - Is your garden’s harvest in the freezer?  Say goodbye to it. Ouch!

Been there. I was stuck in the middle of the night with no power, my batteries had been dying for a while but finally several died one late night. One dropped off and then the others shortly after due to the cold. I was stuck with no money for new batteries. Instead I reconditioned the ones I had and I still use them. Trust me, you don't want that to happen to you. I used this guide on how to recondition my batteries: https://goo.gl/wafUcX
