I have been using the value of 78% of power outages are caused by weather. I need to correct or update this value, as it is important. In a recent article the Department of Energy stated that 90% of power outages are caused by weather related issues. While this might not seem like a big deal, it is important to understand because it means your facility is at more risk of an outage than previously thought. Weather is simply something we can’t control and with climate change the frequency of extreme weather is getting worse.

The utilities do a good job of providing inexpensive power on average, but the nature of what causes outages is out of their control. You must take responsibility for your own resiliency.
