If an EMP attack rendered all technology worthless, would you be prepared? In Issue 19, of Recoil-Offgrid, I join subject matter experts Tim MacWelch and Kevin Reeves in exploring what a possible EMP attack might look like, and some possible strategies for survival. Thanks to the guys at Recoil-OffGrid, we have been given permission to […]
In Part 3 we will take a detailed look at the steps necessary to maintain your standby generator system for MAXIMUM RELIABILITY. If your standby generator system fails to start, run, and transfer power during a utility power outage you have only the illusion of a backup generator. MAKE SURE YOURS IS RELIABLE!
Part 2 takes a “Deep Dive” into the technical details required to attain the highest degree of RELIABILITY from your generator system. The vast majority of service calls for generator failures that we receive during power outages are for generator systems that were poorly installed and/or poorly maintained.
Have you thought about the answer to this question and how your family will survive the next time your electrical utility service is interrupted? Electrical outages can range in length from a few hours to several days or even weeks at a time.
A gasoline generator is a tremendous resource to have during a power outage, especially an extended outage. A generator that runs on more than one fuel source gives you more options when you need them most.
Solar flares are, and will continue to be, of tremendous concern to us since a coronal mass ejection (CME) directed at Earth could devastate our power grid and literally bring society to its knees. Solar flares have occurred in the past, however, today we are much more vulnerable than we have ever been since just […]
Here’s an interview I recently did with Tara Dodrill from Off The Grid News. Richard http://www.offthegridnews.com/2013/06/12/surviving-an-urban-disaster-interview-with-richard-duarte/ Surviving An Urban Disaster
The U.S. electrical grid is more vulnerable today than it has ever been. Cyber attacks have the potential to disrupt large segments of the electrical grid, and top experts confirm that the U.S. is not prepared for this risk. Watch the 60 Minutes Video.
Thousands of People Could Die if the U.S. Power Grid is Attacked. “A terrorist attack on the U.S. power grid could be more destructive than superstorm Sandy, possibly costing hundreds of billions of dollars and leading to thousands of deaths, the National Academy of Sciences said.” Are You Prepared? And if not, what are you […]
