If a heat wave strikes the southwestern United States this summer the way it did in 2011, rolling blackouts are a definite possibility, according to Texas state officials. In response, Power4Patriots recommends that homeowners get off the electrical grid and generate their own solar and wind power.

The best way to keep the lights and air conditioning on is by becoming independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid.

According to the Dallas Morning News, construction of new power plants in Texas has been at a virtual standstill since 2011, despite the fact that the state suffered its worst heat wave on record during that summer.

State officials have been debating about how they can keep rolling blackouts from occurring in the future if another significant heat wave strikes. The article states that the potential for rolling blackouts has increased. According to Dan Jones, the independent market monitor for the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which runs the electrical grid, the state was on the verge of instituting rolling blackouts in 2011.

Heat waves are among a series of weather events that have left countless millions of Americans in the dark through the years. The best way to keep the lights and air conditioning on is by becoming independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid, says the website Cut Your Electric Bills, which strongly urges that people learn how to generate their own electricity through solar panels and wind turbines using a system such as Power4Patriots.

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.
