POWER

THINKING ABOUT POWER REQUIRES THAT WE PLAN FOR TWO THINGS.  WE NEED TO PLAN FOR AN IMMEDIATE POWER SUPPLY AVAILABLE  AS THE CRISIS HAPPENS. WE ALSO NEED TO PLAN FOR AN ONGOING POWER SUPPLY AFTER THE CRISIS, WHEN POWER IS NOT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE REGULAR SYSTEM.  IF THE SYSTEM TOTALLY COLLAPSES, WE MUST BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE OUR OWN POWER.
Erland The Survivalist 

There are many ways to create power, but electricity is the power of the future.  Electricity powers our bodies.  It even powers the gas and diesel engines we use.  In the future the clean sources of electricity we are now developing can be used to power everything without the pollution we now have.  Houses, cars, planes, radios and other things we use will be powered by self-contained electric generating systems without being dependent on the power grids we now use.  This will be tremendously helpful in disaster situations where power is not available because the grid is damaged.

When planning for disaster, think about the power you will need and the ways it can be generated to meet your needs.
