Chicago-Area Residents Lose Power During Blizzard; 4Patriots LLC Recommends a Solar-Powered Generator

Last weekend a blizzard pummeled the Chicago area with snow and high winds, resulting in nearly 92,000 Cook County ComEd customers losing power. Those who owned a generator were able to keep lights on.

More than 90,000 ComEd customers in Cook County and another 75,000 in outlying suburbs experienced power outages due to a blizzard that hit the Chicago area Sunday and Monday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times and other media outlets.

The early season storm dropped six to 10 inches of snow in some areas and featured sustained winds of more than 25 miles per hour.

“The Chicago area is used to these types of storms in December, January and February, but winter appears to be making an early appearance this year,” said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots LLC. Baler’s company provides a variety of products that help people become more self-reliant and independent.

“Regardless of when these storms come, they invariably knock out power long enough to cause problems for residents and businesses. When the weather turns cold, everyone needs to be prepared to deal with power outages in order to stay warm, keep lights on and keep food fresh. The electrical grid is vulnerable, so we need to be ready.”

4Patriots offers the Patriot Power Generator 1500, a portable, solar-powered generator designed to provide electricity for important devices and equipment during a power outage or disaster situation.

It can produce up to 3,000 peak watts of power and comes with an integrated 1,500-watt inverter / 600Wh lithium-iron battery; a 100-watt, commercial grade folding solar panel; and a 25-foot long extension cord.

The Patriot Power Generator 1500 is perfect for people looking for ways to protect themselves and their families from the results of power outages. It weighs only 38 pounds, so it’s small enough to take anywhere and store discreetly, and one can daisy-chain additional solar panels for even more power and faster charging. This generator operates quietly and produces no emissions.

The durable, state-of-the-art, lithium-iron-phosphate battery Patriot Power Generator 1500 is rated for 2,000-plus lifecycles and holds a full battery charge for up to six months. It can be charged by the solar panel, by plugging into a normal 120V AC wall outlet or by a wind turbine.

“People can be prepared for blackouts if they own the Patriot Power Generator 1500,” Baler said. “Even if they don’t experience a power outage, they’ll have the peace of mind that comes from being ready.”
