What to do when the light goes out?

Ideally equipped for a blackout.

Afraid of the next power outage?
With our emergency power generators, you are independently supplied with power even in an emergency.

What is a blackout, and what are the immediate consequences for you?

If the power supply fails over a large area and for a longer period of time, this is referred to as a blackout.
While in a “normal blackout” the power is only briefly unavailable, a blackout lasts up to several hours or days – and across several states or countries. A blackout occurs due to an overload of the power grid, natural disasters or targeted attacks on the power grid.

Lack of lighting

Due to a blackout, neither indoor nor outdoor lighting is available.

Water pump failure

Many water pumps are electrically powered. In the event of a blackout, these pumps fail and thus the tap water supply can no longer be guaranteed.

No heat through heating

Keeping your home warm in the winter normally requires electricity - which is missing during a blackout.

Food spoilage

Without electricity, food can no longer be kept fresh in the refrigerator, and frozen food thaws in the freezer.

Lack of security

Alarm systems and video surveillance systems no longer work, electrically controlled entrance doors open or remain locked.

No charging possibility

The batteries of smartphones, laptops and the like cannot be recharged without power - contact with family and friends breaks down.
