Lights On: The Non-Technical Guide to Battery Power when the Grid Goes Down 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This book is written by a man who knows all about electrical engineering and solar power. This is a very informative book that gives you a great deal of guidance on how to prepare for something catastrophic that is fairly likely to happen in the next few years. That is the loss of power from the electric grid for many weeks or even months over a very large geographic area. Jeffrey Yago points out the limitations of generators and their hopeless inadequacy for long term loss of power over a huge multi-state geographic area. He provides strategies to overcome it and shows what you can do with batteries, solar panels, and appliances designed to run on direct current. This is a very informative book that will help you greatly when the worst thing imaginable happens. It's well-written and very understandable for the ordinary lay person who lacks extensive technical training.
