What Causes a Power Outage and How Can We Help?
Blackouts are caused by many things: old and failing electrical grid systems,5 outdated technology, too much consumer demand for energy during catastrophic events, extreme weather conditions from climate change, forced shutdowns by utility companies for public safety,6 wildfires, hurricanes, extreme heat… the list goes on.
In the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria nearly all of Puerto Rico lost power. Sunrun is proud to have brought solar-as-a-service to Puerto Rico to support their economy by providing Sunrun jobs, and to give Puerto Ricans the freedom to make their own energy. Puerto Rico can be resilient in the years to come by using safe, sustainable solar energy.
Utilities Must Modernize for the Future
It’s common knowledge that if we build renewable and sustainable energies, and make it easy for people to access this life-sustaining technology into our day-to-day lives, we are going to build a better, brighter future. A clean-planet future that doesn’t require dirty toxic fuels to run our lives.
Utilities must modernize the grid and build infrastructure to accommodate sustainable energies like solar and wind. This includes working with batteries to store energy that responds to our needs during a blackout or power outage.
Backup battery power and solar panels during a catastrophic event can save lives and help communities be more resilient and get back on their feet as soon as possible. Battery storage and renewable energy is no longer a discussion, it’s empirical data.
