Given the current climate crisis, natural disasters like storms, hurricanes, and earthquakes are no more a rare scenario. One of the major challenges that such natural disasters bring along with them is – power outages. The power outages in such periods might stretch to one or two weeks. The world has experienced several power outages in recent years. The massive power outage in Brazil left tens of millions without power. Over hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses were in dark during the massive blackout in Argentina. South Africa is experiencing the worst blackouts in two years.

In some cases, such as in the United States, the outages have been caused by severe weather. In other cases, such as in Venezuela, the outages have been caused by political instability. Whatever the cause, power outages can have a major impact on people’s lives. They can cause businesses to lose money, and can even lead to deaths in medical emergencies.

There are several companies in the market that offer the solution of power backups to be used during such emergencies. One of the leading solutions in this range is the Home Power and Solar Generator Series by Geneverse.

Geneverse offers 4 different products:

1. HomePower Series

  • HomePower 1: Backup Battery Power Station
  • HomePower 2: Backup Battery Power Station

2. Solar Power Series

  • SolarPower 1: Portable Solar Panels
  • SolarPower 2: All–Weather Portable Solar Panels

The basic principle on which the Backup Battery Power Station works is that when power is available, these batteries are charged by simply plugging in the cord in an AC switch, car outlet, or solar panel (Solar Power Series). The stored power can be utilized in periods of power outages. The ease with which these batteries can be used is something that makes this product very unique.

Furthermore, the SolarPower series offered by Geneverse is a great solution in times when the batteries can not be charged by traditional methods. It can be because the power outages have been longer than usual or the batteries weren’t kept charged before the power outage occurred. In such scenarios, these potable solar panels offer an efficient and sustainable way to recharge the batteries with solar power.

Depending on the size of the home and the number of devices required in an emergency, there are a few things to consider when purchasing the battery backup station and solar generator. Most importantly, you need to determine how much power your appliance requires. One of the easiest ways to measure the electricity usage of appliances is by using a Power Consumption Meter. Additionally, knowing the energy consumption of household appliances also gives you more control over how to monitor and limit the overall monthly electricity bills.

Furthermore, it is essential to make yourself familiar with the general terminologies to describe a battery. Most of the batteries mention two power capacities:

  • Rated Power: Rated power is the maximum power that can be drawn from the battery continuously without any damage
  • Surge Power: Surge power is the maximum power that can be drawn to handle instantaneous overloads for a very short period.

To explain with an example here, HomePower 1: Backup Battery Station has a battery capacity of 1000 Wh. This implies, that it can power a 1000 W load for an hour. In simpler terms,

  • If you have a device with a rated power of 100 W, then HomePower 1 can charge it for 10 hours before discharge.
  • If you have 2 devices with a rated power of 100 W each, the HomePower 1 can charge each of these for 5 hours before discharging completely.

Once you have known the electricity requirements of your home during an emergency, you can easily check the specifications of each of the batteries and the solar generators and chose what fits your requirements.

What are the major appliances that you might require to run during power outages?

1. Refrigerator: A power outage can cause your food to spoil quickly. If you have a generator, you can hook it up to your fridge to keep it running.

2. Sump Pump: A sump pump is a pump that is used to remove water that has accumulated in the basement of a home. If you have a basement, you‘ll want to make sure your sump pump is working in case of flooding.

3. Lamp: You’ll obviously need some light during a power outage. Candles are always a good option, but you might also want to invest in some energy-efficient lamps, flashlights, or lanterns.

4. Medical Equipment: Medical equipment is critical for many people. If you or someone in your family relies on medical equipment, you’ll want to make sure it’s working during a power outage. This could include things like oxygen tanks, nebulizers, and other life-sustaining equipment.

While battery backups are a reliable source to plug in the medical equipment during power outages, it is always a good measure to keep other alternatives like portable equipment.

A power cut is a disruptive and often stressful event. Depending on the severity, an outage can last for a few hours or several days. However, it is important to have a plan in place to ensure the safety and comfort of your family and your home. A battery backup is a wise investment for anyone in such periods.
