As natural disasters sweep the globe, homeowners have faced life-altering circumstances from home damage to displacement. Hurricane Ian recently made its mark across the state of Florida causing much distress to Floridians and those visiting the state. This hurricane damaged many homes and electrical lines, leading to loss of power for many. In turn, loss of power has the potential of impacting quality of life preventing Floridians from doing basic tasks such as running your dishwasher or cooking a meal for your family.
However, there were many families in Florida that were able to combat some of the impact Hurricane Ian ensued. Curious how? With the help of solar panels!
Interestingly, in a Wall Street Journal article covering the subject, we learn “Neighborhoods powered by solar panels with backup batteries weathered the direct onslaught of Hurricane Ian in Florida, utilities and developers said, keeping the lights on throughout the storm while millions of others lost power.” Homeowners with solar were able to continue about their normal activities and avoid some of the harsh impact of Hurricane Ian. Solar owners in our service areas agree. Our customers have reported that their panels with battery backup have "helped give peace of mind knowing our families have a better shot of keeping our homes functioning at their best."
This feat is a testament to the power of solar. While much of the surrounding area lost power, those neighborhoods powered by solar with backup batteries weathered the storm that was Hurricane Ian and were able to power their homes. Archie Collins, chief executive of Tampa Electric noted, “…They rode through the entire hurricane without any loss of power.” Solar provides security for homes and families in the midst of uncertain times.
