The risks of hurricane-caused wind damage will grow along the East and Gulf coasts over the next 30 years and expand into inland areas previously thought to be out of reach for most of these storms, new research finds.

The researchers found that more than 13.4 million properties will be exposed to tropical storm force or greater wind risk in 30 years that are not currently.

The Mid-Atlantic would see the largest increase in maximum wind speeds. The Northeast would see annual wind damages increase by 87% between now and 2053.

What can you do? More extreme weather with higher winds means more outages. While the utilities are talking about improving grid resilience, there is almost nothing they can do to protect you from downed wires due to wind. Only you can protect yourself with backup power. 

Nobody wants the expense of a backup generator, so get all of the value with no upfront cost with Exergy’s Backup as a Service. We own, operate, maintain and service the generator so you don’t have to bother. Stay resilient without the cost or headaches.
