about

Following the simple plans in Lights On will ensure that you are safe and secure during widespread long-term power outages.

The US electric grid is at greater risk today than ever before. From aging infrastructure, severe weather, and EPA mandated closure of coal-fired power plants to solar storms, digital sabotage, terrorism, and electromagnetic pulse attacks, future outages are almost certain. And they will likely last far longer and cover much larger areas than anything experienced in the past. When the grid is down and you run out of fuel for your generator, and all the stores are closed, then what?

Lights On: The Non-Technical Guide to Battery Power when the Grid Goes Down has the solution. Energy expert Jeffrey Yago lays out the lost history of early residential battery power and delves into just how durable and universal battery-powered devices are. Battery-powered devices can provide lighting, communications, refrigeration, safety, and entertainment when all else fails. Yago covers the multiple ways to keep your batteries recharged and ready to go. 

There are many books and magazines on emergency preparedness, survival, solar power, and disaster planning, which show strong public interest in these topics. However, many offer brief introductions to each topic. Lights On provides easy-to-understand detailed information on having a plan of action for setting up a battery-powered home in advance of widespread and sustained power outages. This is the only book you need to be prepared to keep your refrigerator running, your lights on, and much more.

Jeffrey Yago is a licensed engineering, NABCEP certified solar professional, and a certified energy professional with more than forty years professional experience working in the energy and emergency power field. He is a regular contributor to Backwoods Home Magazine and has contributed to Home Power Magazine and Mother Earth News. Yag...
