Introduction

Hopefully this section of the site will give you some ideas on how to provide emergency power for your own needs whenever you may need it.

You have to study electronics and electricity enough so that you can use modular building blocks like some of what I did below to provide expedient power solutions.

I live in the mountains in the middle of nowhere and commercial power has never been reliable.

When I first moved here we would have week long power outages.

Nowadays it isn't uncommon to have 6-8 hour outages as well.

There is of course the concern that the grid may not be around at all someday so I have always been determined to make sure I can live a technological lifestyle for as long as possible.

We also need to remember that having solar power is nice until there is no sun.
