When making your hurricane preparedness plan this year, you may be considering adding a generator to your list.
Here in Southwest Florida, you don’t want to be caught without backup power come hurricane season. We all remember Hurricane Irma, September 2017’s catastrophic storm. After the storm, 99% of the population of Florida was without power. It took almost two weeks before the power companies reestablished power— and even towards the end of September, there were still more than 70,000 outages in the state.
