What Happens When the Power Goes Out?
Blackouts and power outages happen without warning and can be caused by a variety of factors such as:
- • Fire
- • Earthquake
- • Hurricane
- • Thunderstorm
- • Tornado
- • Human Error
- • High Energy Consumption
- • Overused Power Grids
- • Accidents
They’re inconvenient…and costly. Just think about what a blackout could cost you.
- A moderate estimate is that a family of four spends $800 on food each month, and much of that can be ruined in a prolonged blackout.
- When the power suddenly returns, those surges can damage your most expensive electronics, including televisions, appliances, and computer equipment.
- And if you or your family depends on medical equipment or refrigerated medicines, your health could be at risk!
