The Backup Generator Boom in California
The wildfires happening in California have been devastating to families and their homes. The wildfires have been a major concern for residents, especially with the warm weather and the wind coming off the ocean. Backup generators weren’t a he necessity to California residents until now when the state utility Pacific Gas & Electric decided it would be conducting rolling blackouts for the next several years.
The Reason for Rolling Blackouts
Rolling blackouts are temporary power outages that are happening in California due to the wildfires and overheating. In California, transformers and other electrical equipment has overheated and some caught fire due to the excessive heat.
A Need for Generators
If residents will be experiencing rolling blackouts now due to precautionary measures, the demand for backup generators will be increased. Backup generators come with great benefits, especially if the rolling blackouts last for some time. Older residents and younger residents with families will need power for their home. If people have babies, they’ll need food and other necessities during a blackout. It’s beneficial for the elderly residents to have a backup generator during these blackouts to prevent injuries in the house.
