AUSTIN, Texas, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- It's Hurricane Preparedness Week, and considering the recent thunderstorms, the Propane Council of Texas wants to spotlight how propane generators can help whether you are inland or on the Coast. According to Eaton.com's "Blackout Tracker," between 2008-2017, 11,475,011 Texans were affected by 1,603 power outages across the Lone Star State. Blackouts can happen in every corner of the state whether you are West Texas, South Texas, East Texas, the Coast or beyond.
Power outages can come at any time and last for seconds, hours, or even days. Imagine your home's dark, your cell phone battery is 1%, the food in refrigerator, freezer and backup freezer is spoiling, no TV news or computer to know what's going on or how long the outage will be. That's frustrating and even scary.
Whether its strong storm cell or a hurricane, there are things homeowners can do to prepare. Give your family greater comfort, security, and safety with a propane generator.
When equipped with an automatic transfer switch, a propane standby generator can produce supplemental electricity, often in as little as 10 seconds after primary power failure.
Whether your home is propane or an all-electric home, a propane generator can be added. There are propane standby generators to fit any size home or budget.
A 7kW standby generator drawing fuel from a 250-gallon propane tank can provide enough electricity to power a home for up to five days.
Environmentally-friendly, quiet, and zero degradation unlike with gasoline and diesel, a propane generator offers more than just power, it provides advantages and peace of mind. Propane can do that. Learn more about what propane can do at www.propane.com.
