UPS Battery Back Up Systems Provide Power during Catastrophe
A UPS is Part of Your Catastrophe Planning
The American Power Supply grid is decades old, with little investmest in much of the system. Frankly put, the PUC, or public utility commission, by taking jurisdiction, provides little to no incentive for investment in said infrastructure, nor are you allowed to own what you build.
Would you invest in something where you build it so somebody else owns it?
Power companies tend not to either...
As such, the power grid in the United States is becoming more and more heavily used as the population, and the per capita electricity consumption both grow at exponential rates. The result of this dual expansion is a power grid that runs at a very high through put, without much buffer to absorb natural disasters, periods of high usage, or mechanical failures in the system. Each has dire, and epic consequences for those who have learned to depend on a system not robust enough to provide during their time of need.
In each of these situations, there are many folks who just went about their business, after flipping a switch. If their property avoided the floods, winds, and initial destruction, they just returned to normal. As others suffer without the services from the utility company, solar panels, wind generators, batteries, generators, and inverters keep their homes and businesses operating normally.
