Electricity needs when the grids down.

RE: Electricity needs when the grids down.
Nice to see you back on the Forum, LS. Your advice on off grid energy always gives me food for thought (and envy).
I don’t want to hear my neighbour but I want to see the smoke of their chimney.

Hi Mary, Good to see you're still around.

As I explained to SS a couple of days ago, we've had some major issues to deal with over the last few years. All of the prep efforts made paid off big time for us

Now we've caught our breath so to speak, I've a little more time for myself, so will be on here from time to time.

Stay safe!

We received a letter from our power provider , in essence ......they were asking if there are any vulnerable persons living at our address , and to fill in a form and send it back......this would ensure they could react to the needs of households who are listed..........we filled in the form and sent it back.......make of it what you will ?
To take a look back in times past, its easy to see future direction you need to be.

I trust that you declared yourself to be the vulnerable person SS?

Assume that there is faster response to vulnerable persons when there are power failures???

That or it is triage, they want to know who is not worth wasting resources on.

They still shoot horses when they go down.

RE: Electricity needs when the grids down.
I've worked with utilities for several years now. That specific request is so they know who can't be without power/water for long periods of time. they will even plan to get a genny or bowser to you if it is important enough. Even having marine fish and exotic pets can get you special treatment.

That isn't to say it can't be retasked. Most of the data is reported to the regulatory body for that specific industry so it would be easy for them to do so.
