The South Australian Power outage is well know, what is not well known is CanYa's ability to protect you

Don’t be left in the dark ever again!

South Australia’s 2016 Power Outage

For those that aren’t aware or don’t remember, in 2016 there was a statewide power outage in South Australia! It was well documented while it was happening and the preliminary findings were explained in detail. Here are the high points:

  • Big ass 50-year storm knocks out 22 power poles
  • Power transient knocks trips “safety switch” between VIC and SA
  • Renewable power couldn’t help as they were shut down due to unsafe wind speeds
  • 1.67M residents without power

The government’s longterm plans?

The SA government has been left with egg on it’s face after an embarrassing statewide electrical blackout; so what is there to do? You take up a billionaire’s offer to fix it for you in 100 days or it is free!

Elon Musk takes to twitter to get the SA government's attention.
If anybody can fix SA’s power problems, it is Elon!

It has been confirmed that Elon Musk (well Tesla, actually) will be fixing SA’s power issues in 100 days or less! This will include the world’s biggest battery to capture all of the renewable energy that the state is producing. The “100 days or less” hasn’t started yet and will only start after the contract is signed off by the government.

How do you protect your family from a black-out in the meantime?

Your short-term plans?

It has been shown that a full power outage is inevitable. The only way that you can ensure that your family is protected is to take matters into your own hands! So what is the best solution? You should start by looking at a home generator backup system.

These versatile generator systems are perfect to have in your garage! You can use them on camping trips, take them to family BBQs at the park and best of all, use them when the state’s power grid is down!

You can either have the system directly supply power to selected appliances or get a local electrician to install a power supply bypass switch so you can power your entire house from your generator.
