Calculating the true costs of sustained power outages to US communities as a result of climate events.

Project Description

Promote photovoltaic microgrid power backup systems for emergency management by producing a case study on the true costs of sustained power outages in US communities with poverty rates above the national average which have been affected by climate events such as hurricanes, wildfires, and deep freezes.

Project Goals

The goal is to produce a published, peer-reviewed case study which can be used by advocates to influence decisionmakers on the merits of PV microgrids for emergency management in areas of the US prone to natural disasters.
