If you haven’t noticed, the odds of us experiencing a grid-down event have escalated to almost a near certainty. Whether it’s a CME from the sun or a cyberattack on the electrical grid infrastructure, or incredibly-simple-to-do physical attack on substations, or a “historic” winter storms now raging the east – it is extremely likely that you’re going to find yourself without grid electrical power. My recommendation, if you haven’t already, is to start preparing for both short and long term power outages.
