Increasing Outages
As regional and local electric grids become increasingly unreliable, many areas of the country are experiencing an unprecedented number of power outages. As a result, consumers are taking proactive measures and investing in backup power systems.

In the summer of 2003, the U.S. experienced the largest blackout in the history of the country. In a matter of seconds over 50 million people in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Ontario were without power. Although terrorists' actions were ruled out in this case, there continues to be serious concern that the electricity grid is vulnerable to sabotage. Since 2003 there have been multiple-day power outages in the D.C. metro area. In addition to the weather related events there is an increasing risk that electric grid equipment overload and cyber attacks could result in major power outages.
