Why summer brings power outages – and how Progress Lighting’s Waystar should be part of your emergency action plan
Why do power outages tend to occur more when it’s hot outside? The power grid is constantly in use, but the demand on the grid is much higher in summer.
And while many outages can be attributed to storms and weather-related incidents, the extra strain on the power grid in the summer can cause some components to fail, even though they have operated normally through winter.
Power outage preparedness should not be taken lightly, as once the lights are out and you are unable to depend on many of your technological devices for support, you may become distressed.
However, you can curb your anxieties during this stressful time by being prepared.
Progress Lighting recently introduced Waystar to help people prepare in the case of emergencies that disrupt power.
During a power outage, this innovative LED emergency light illuminates the path to safety for up to 90 minutes.
It features a compact and simple design and is flame-rated UV stable. Ideal for hallways, corridors and stairways, members of the household have 90 minutes of emergency lighting to exit safely or gather necessary items – such as water, first aid kits and non-perishable food.
There is nothing like it on the market as its streamlined design fits into a home seamlessly – and unobtrusively.
What does your emergency plan look like? Make sure you review all details with your family to make sure that – in the event of a power outage – you are prepared, safe and comfortable. Learn more about Waystar here: https://progresslighting.com/waystar/[ux_products ids=”86695,86694,86697,86696″]
