If we needed a stern reminder as to how reliant we are on our existing electrical infrastructure – and how fragile it can be – we certainly got it.

NBC has released a new television series this year called, “Revolution.” The show depicts a complete “grid-down” scenario where electricity ceases to exist. With the vulnerability of the power grid growing, as evident in recent power outages, this scenario is becoming an increasing reality.
Off The Grid News is an online company that has set out to give people the tools they need to become more self-reliant. They have released a new, free report about how to get off-the-grid power when conventional power is not available. This report, called Blackout: The Top 11 Threats to the Power Grid, is currently available at http://www.OffTheGridNews.com. The report discusses many of the threats to the current power grid while offering off-the-grid solutions to self-sufficient families who want to be prepared.
On October 31, 2012 Peter Kelly-Detwiler, Contributing Editor of Forbes Magazine, stated, “If we needed a stern reminder as to how reliant we are on our existing electrical infrastructure – and how fragile it can be – we certainly got it. Estimates of overall storm damage are as high as $50 billion, and a respectable portion of that (but by no means the majority) will come as a result of power outages.”
Off The Grid News currently offers sixteen free, informative reports about issues facing the American public. They add a new report each month which outlines both problems and off-the-grid solutions so that families can continue to survive and thrive in relative comfort, no matter what the future brings.
