Power4Patriots Responds to Power Outages Caused by Nemo by Suggesting to Homeowners that They Get off the Grid

The historic storm that struck the Northeast U.S. late last week resulted in approximately 650,000 homes and businesses losing power. In response to this reminder of the vulnerability of the U.S. electrical power grid, Power4Patriots suggests that homeowners get off the grid by generating their own solar and wind power.

Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) February 14, 2013

According to USA Today and other media outlets, Nemo resulted in numerous record snow amounts and approximately 650,000 homes and businesses losing power.

Through the years, millions of Americans have been left in the dark by storms such as Katrina, Sandy and now Nemo. In order to avoid being dependent on a vulnerable power grid, Power4Patriots suggests that people learn how to generate their own electricity through solar panels and wind turbines.

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 whether the Power4Patriots system can be used to complement and back up an existing connection to the conventional power grid, or whether it must replace that connection.
