BBC News - Lebanon left without power as grid shuts down
I’ve known about the sad story in Lebanon for a few years, politics isn’t working.
It does keep in my mind power outages for me and family.
I don’t particularly invest in solving it, I didnt invest in a generator, I only keep Powercore total 100Ah and Bolder LC40 LC90 LC130 maintained charged, and 40W solar if it’s longer than a few days.
I keep a freezer in the coldest part of property and camping fuel and stove (*)
It wouldn’t take much more than say two weeks before it gets difficult for me.
Anyone here got a fuller system ready?
UK has nothing remotely as bad as Lebanon but it does help enunciate how things can get bad. I nearly completely eradicated driving, mostly biking now, and insulated the house so don’t need heating. I’m thinking of solar but all the information tells me to wait.
- I may buy another litre of Alcohol for the camping stove, it’s one of the safest fuels and cheap. My stove was new in 1983.
