Disasters and Emergencies Can Happen Anytime, Anywhere
You don’t have to live in a hurricane zone, a harsh winter climate or Tornado Alley to worry about a power outage. Whether caused by severe weather or infrastructure failure, a power outage can happen without warning in every part of the country. In 2020, power outages left Americans in the dark for 1.33 billion hours. September is National Preparedness Month. Now is a good time to create a power outage preparedness plan and take the steps necessary to keep your loved ones, home and property safe. Purchasing the right generator is an important part of being prepared for the unexpected.
Be Aware of How Much a Power Outage Could Cost You
What you stand to lose far outweighs the initial cost of a home generator. In fact, your investment could pay off several times with just one prolonged power outage.
