As our electricity dependence grows larger, and the grid here in California is compromised from natural disasters and outdated equipment, are you thinking about your backup plan when it comes to your electricity needs when the power goes off?
For some, living without a cell phone can be scary enough. But for those who are dependent on around the clock medical equipment, refrigeration, and other integral appliances, it is necessary to have a backup plan for the unexpected and planned PSPS power outages that are bound to occur. For those looking to keep the lights on (along with everything else) no matter what happens to the electrical grid here in Sacramento, and the rest of the PG&E service area, the energy experts at Brower Mechanical offers professional installation of backup generators so you can experience the peace of mind that comes with reliable electricity, no matter what.
PG&E Planned Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS)
After the devastation of wildfires that California has seen over the last decade, PG&E is, in fact, planning power outages in the near future. These power outages are called Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS). These PSPS’s will be hard to predict, but the idea behind them is to mitigate the risk of wildfires sparking in the first place. There is no way to tell how many planned outages there will be, nor how long they will last. Outages are expected throughout the PG&E service area in Greater Sacramento, including Auburn, Lincoln, Yuba City, Placerville, Newcastle, Loomis, Penryn and Davis.
Professional Backup Generator Installation
A backup generator will run on natural gas or propane, and can be installed in-line with your current electrical system, to switch on the second that an outage is detected. This ensures that your home doesn’t miss a beat! With a backup generator, you can:
- Keep your food cold and not perish
- Run your water heater for hot showers
- Power your devices
- Run your heating & cooling equipment
- Maintain power to any security systems for sustained safety
- Run your water pump
Not only is a power outage a little unnerving, but it can also be flat out uncomfortable. Even the most efficient heating and cooling equipment require some electricity to operate, and with a professionally installed backup generator, you can continue to keep your home at the perfect temperature. Not to mention, you may be the only home in the neighborhood that is able to keep the lights on!
Tired of Relying On The Grid? Try Solar Plus a Generator!
Who could blame you for wanting to rid yourself of all the ups and downs of California’s power grid? We hear from a lot of homeowners throughout the Sacramento area looking to reduce their reliance on unpredictable utility companies and electricity rates by installing solar panels on their home or property. Not only will homeowners benefit from reliable, clean renewable energy but you can take greater control of your energy needs and reduce your energy bills.
But did you know that a standard array of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels will still lose power during a PG&E PSPS power outage? So, if you’re thinking about going solar, consider also installing a generator for electricity backup when the grid goes down or in the event of a Public Safety Power Shutoff.
