Today’s tragic earthquake and subsequent tsunamis in Japan, and the recent earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand, highlight the fundamental need for planning and preparedness in advance of natural disasters. Infrastructure breakdowns, telecommunications disruptions, emergency medical stations are just some of the results of an emergency, and all require electrical power to function properly.
Goes without saying that large scale power grids are often taken out immediately, and that emergency power must be portable, rugged, and if truly capable, must be completely self-sufficient. Now, a diesel generator may fit the bill on the first two requirements, but when the fuel runs out, and more can’t be procured, it becomes just another derelict vehicle.
When emergency first-responders or even military units are called out to assist with massive disasters, mobile solar generators can become a primary tool providing renewable electricity that is stored in onboard batteries and available well into the night.
A Mobile Solar Power System, on the other hand, will be replenished by the sun each day, and if used properly, can be utilized for days or weeks at a time. (Warning: sales pitch coming:) Pure Power has such Systems available, and inquiries for such emergency power should be directed to info@PurePowerD.com.
