Power grids across the US are under pressure, causing more blackouts than ever. But what causes blackouts? The short answer is out of date power facilities & extreme weather. The long answer? Read our blog to learn the 10 common causes of blackouts (and 2 unexpected ones).

Storms

Severe storms can lead to flooding, deep-freezes, power line damage, stress on the grid & a whole lot more disruption. Solar generators can tide you over until the power is back on-line.
Tip: Keep portable power in your home in the event of rolling blackouts.

Wildfires

Wildfires can damage power lines, disrupt entire swathes of suburbs and cause chaos. Portable power can secure your home supply, or be a source of energy on the go.
Tip: Clear a perimeter around your home. Add mesh over any open vents.

Hurricanes

Hurricanes can result in 2.4 trillion gallons of rain per day, causing major power outages across cities.
Tip: Move essentials away from the ground floor, especially electronics.

How long do power
outages last?

It depends what caused it. Extreme weather events can lead to extended blackouts lasting hours to days. Grid pressure can then trigger planned rolling blackouts for hours at a time, as we saw in Texas last year. On the other hand, some blackouts only last for minutes, enough to disturb your day.
