A fire at a San Francisco, Calif., power substation caused a blackout for approximately 90,000 people last week, according to — USA Today and other media outlets.
A Pacific Gas & Electric spokesperson told KCBS-TV in San Francisco, “We had equipment failure, the catastrophic failure of a circuit breaker… something went wrong with the breaker to cause it to explode.” The outage emptied many businesses and schools, and affected tens of thousands of local residents.
Although extreme weather remains the number one culprit when it comes to power outages, there are many other causes, including equipment malfunctions such as this one; birds, squirrels and other animals becoming tangled up in wires; cyber and physical attacks against the electrical grid; and more.
“Any of those causes and many others can put people in the dark, cause food to spoil and make a variety of electronic devices that we depend on inoperable,” said Allen Baler, Partner at Nashville, Tenn.-based 4Patriots LLC, a company that provides products that help people become more independent and self-reliant.
“We see it every day in one part of the country or another. Homes and businesses lose power on a regular basis, sometimes for half a day or more. Fortunately, there’s a way to prepare for the next blackout, and that’s by having a fully-charged generator ready to restore power in a timely fashion.”
Baler’s company offers the solution: the Patriot Power Generator 1500, a portable solar 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 ideal 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 who own the Patriot Power Generator 1500 have the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are prepared for a blackout… even if they never experience one.”
