How a power outage can cost you money and what you can do about it

(BPT) - From the aging power grid to severe weather events, power outages lasting over an hour or two are increasing, no matter where you live. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, electricity customers experienced an average of eight hours of power outages in 2020, causing many to seek solutions like home standby generators.

“While storms have historically played a big part in the demand for home standby generators, things like aging grids, rolling brown-outs and the work-from-home trend are just a few of the reasons that we continue to see significant sales growth in standby generators in recent years, and this growth is expected to continue,” said Michelle Gross, senior director, marketing of energy solutions at Briggs & Stratton.
