Be ready in case of an emergency is a 24/7 with solar power solutions for local disaster response and preparedness

Disaster-and-ResponseBeing ready in case of an emergency is a 24/7 ordeal, but the promptest disaster response systems require electricity to function. In the event of an emergency, power lines may go down, and that can prevent many technologies from doing what they need to. Backup generators and alternative power sources are often the solution, but finding a cost-effective way to implement these can be a challenge for the local governments in charge of them.

Solar power can continue providing energy when the grid goes down. In addition, it can be used in tandem with battery banks to ensure that early warning and public announcement technologies function in any weather. SunWize Power and Battery systems allow for continuous power in any location so that local emergency response plans can be performed without unnecessary complications.

Portable power systems mounted to trailers, skids or trucks allow local response teams to operate mobile command posts, communication systems, device charging stations, pumps and other equipment in the event of an emergency, even when other energy sources are unavailable. Disaster response solar panel systems connected in hybrid with diesel or natural gas generators or batteries will reduce generator operating time to preserve fuel and provide hours of silent operation. The emergency response equipment may be attached to other portable trailers, skids, or vehicles, or may be installed in a facility.

When providing advance warning of disasters, solar panels and battery banks can keep an emergency notification system running in any weather condition so that local emergency response plans can be successfully executed. This may involve public announcement systems as well as data acquisition technologies, such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), telemetry, and remote terminal unit (RTU) systems controlling municipal systems.

Local governments can use solar power to run the following critical emergency response elements:

Our highly-experienced solar engineering staff designs rugged power systems to meet your project’s specific electrical, logistical, and environmental requirements.

Solar power and batteries can provide a convenient, cost-effective solution to areas without access to the utility power needed to implement telecom systems such as WiFi, base transceiver stations (BTS), cell phone networks, satellite terminals, and so forth. It can also help maintain telecommunication systems in the event of inclement weather, which is particularly useful for emergency situations.

For example, remote power systems can be used to support a wifi infrastructure in areas without access to conventional power. It can also be useful on large campuses in locations where power may not otherwise be cost effective to obtain. Solar power can help maximize the efficiency and minimize the costs of the following telecom technologies:

  • Water systems
  • Backup power systems
  • Medical facilities
  • Emergency notification systems
  • Computer networks and data center
  • Standby generators
  • Searchlights
  • Shelter support systems
  • Mobile command centers on trailers, skids or trucks
  • Public announcement systems
  • Radio, cell, and other communication systems
  • Early detection and warning systems

Remote Power Advantages For Response & Preparedness Teams

Each system we design is specifically tailored to meet the specific load requirements of the various elements involved in your area’s disaster preparedness plan. This is crucial to ensuring that plans can be executed without any mishaps. The solar panels used as well as the thermoelectric generators (TEG), voltage converters, and power supplies included in your project’s specific solar power package are selected to match your needs.

With their rugged, project-specific design, our industrial solar power systems are ideal for remote instrumentation, disaster response equipment, and local alert systems. Since they can be installed as an on-site power source, they require minimal infrastructure to function effectively, thus making them much less likely to be compromised in a disaster scenario.

Remote power systems are also more cost-effective than wiring energy to remote locations, thus freeing up local tax revenue for other purposes. Local governments therefore get the following advantages for lower overhead:

– 24/7 solar power for critical emergency operations
– Reliable equipment that is less likely to fail
– Power systems that are custom-designed by an experienced team
