There is no denying the fact that anyone preparing for disaster is going to need to have some sort back up power source. We are going to lose power at some point and once that happens your options get really short. When you have power in a disaster you can stick around for a long time.

Now, there are a number of backup power sources that are effective enough to be used today. You could rely on gasoline, wind or even water to power your home in a disaster. However, there is nothing more consistent than the sun. I am talking about solar power.

Wind can die down, gasoline goes away fast in a disaster but the sun is up there burning for another 9 billion years or so. That’s consistency you cannot ignore.

Solar Panels

Did you know that solar panels can even be made DIY these days. The tech is just going get better and better. These panels are also cheaper than ever
