While there is a huge swell of people who are hungry to get off grid and away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life, there are many more people who love on grid life. Who could blame them? We are talking about a time and place where we can have all the information and all the tools in our hands in a matter of seconds or days at most. That is convenience that is hard to give up. That is also convenience that can be taken away in a second. Think about the island of Puerto Rico. They still have not recovered.
Being caught off by a grid down situation could mean a few things. If we are talking a short term grid down situation it could be discomfort. It could mean no power for a week! If we are talking about a long term grid down situation, well, that is much worse and that means we could be talking about mass casualties for the unprepared.
