Today a series of events clipped electricity from the Kenai. A gas turbine in Nikiski went out, and then a powerline from Girdwood that would provide electricity was cut. Early this morning the power went out, yet just after supper time it had been restored. Yet along with Fairbank’s outage lastweek, the situation demonstrates that having a backup heat source and power source is a good policy. Even utilities remind customers to have several days of supplies in case of outages. Think through of what kind of water source, food, and heat source you may have on hand. What can you purchase, put away or build in order to be ready? Look out for our new publication that may help you think through it, “Considering Off-Grid Energy”.
