Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) January 21, 2013
Power outages, rolling blackouts and rolling brownouts have led many people to believe that the U.S. power grid is not as reliable as it should be. And now, a recently declassified federal study, as reported by USA Today and other media, reveals that the grid is also vulnerable to a terrorist attack.
Citing the grid’s old technology, lack of spare capacity and incapability of keeping pace with the increasing burden being placed upon it, the formerly secret report states that a sophisticated physical assault against the grid could produce catastrophic results.
In order to avoid dependency on an old, faulty and vulnerable power grid, Power4Patriots recommends that people get off the grid and 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.
Power4Patriots is a collection of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system 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, as well as 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 a Power4Patritos system will still work if a terrorist attack takes out the conventional power grid.
