Power4Patriots Responds to Super Bowl XLVII Power Outage by Reminding Homeowners of Importance of Solar and Wind Energy

A 34-minute power outage at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 was a reminder of the vulnerability of the U.S. electrical power grid. In response, Power4Patriots recommends the best way for homeowners to protect themselves from power outages is by generating off-grid solar and wind power.

During the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome lost approximately half of its power, delaying the game for 34 minutes, according to The New York Times and other media outlets.

Power outages, rolling blackouts and rolling brownouts in the U.S. have left millions of people in the dark through the years, including as a result of storms such as Sandy and Katrina. To avoid dependency on a vulnerable power grid, Power4Patriots recommends that people generate their own solar and wind power.

The Power4Patriots system is an environmentally friendly way to cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent while making a home, cabin or RV self-sufficient. The system is a collection of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters.

It includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes; 10 Frequently Asked Questions videos; and two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.

Check out this video that answers the question about how long it takes to build a solar panel using the Power4Patriots system.
