What Happens When You Don’t Have an Automatic Home Backup Power Generator in Savannah, Georgia

If you are from Savannah, the phrase “Only in Savannah” describes the confluence of history, architecture, and growth that make up Georgia’s oldest city and fastest-growing metro area. Founded in 1733 as a major port city, downtown Savannah retains its original town plan, built around 22 parklike squares, with lush vegetation, and majestic live oak trees — some more than 300 years old. With 400,000 residents, the three-county Savannah metro area attracts 14 million tourists from around the world each year.

Given its location just south of Charleston, South Carolina on Georgia’s Atlantic coastline, it’s no surprise that winters are mild and summers are hot, humid, and almost tropical. Late spring and summer bring frequent late afternoon storms, with lots of rain.   During peak hurricane season, Savannah is spared from direct hits by the westward curve of the coastline as tropical storms and hurricanes move up the Atlantic Coast to North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

But, even without a direct hit, Savannah’s low elevation makes it particularly prone to flooding and surges. When Tropical  Storm  Elsa moved through Savannah on July 7, 2021, it brought heavy rainfall and flash flooding to the city,  and a tornado sighting on Tybee Island. More than 10,000 residents and businesses lost power, many for almost a week.

If you live anywhere in the Savannah area, you know that it doesn’t take a hurricane or tornado to bring life to a standstill.  Unexpected power outages happen all the time due to weather or damaged transmission equipment. Savannah residents report inconvenient and unexpected power outages throughout the year, sometimes lasting an entire day. One cause is storm-weakened live oaks dropping limbs on power lines or transmission equipment.

But when there is a major power disturbance in Savannah, it doesn’t take too long for your food, supplies, and peace of mind to run low, even if you’ve had time to prepare ahead of time. 

If you don’t have a backup home generator, your options are limited. You can wait for power to come back on — no cooking, no lights, no refrigeration, no HVAC, no TV, no phone chargers, no power for medical devices, and often no water.  Or you can use up some of your dwindling phone charge by hunting down an available hotel room or a kind-hearted friend with power. That can be a gamble if the roads en route are blocked by flooding, fallen trees, downed power lines, or traffic accidents.

While you can’t control the weather or increasingly frequent local transmission outages, you CAN avoid the inconvenience, and insecurity that comes every time severe weather is in the forecast or power in your neighborhood goes off.

Before the next storm season brings new power outage challenges,  you can explore an altogether better option—the peace of mind that comes with uninterrupted power from an automatic, whole home backup generator from Canter Power Systems. 

When you’ve got a backup Generator in Savannah, Georgia

Now, think how your life would change if you never had to worry about being without power in Savannah  — ever again. When the power goes out – for any reason –your Generac home backup generator from Canter Power Systems allows you and your family to relax in the comfort and protection of your own home.  Your life goes on as usual,  even if power is out for an extended period

Whether it’s a storm, power equipment failure, or just a sunny day blip, your home backup generator turns itself on automatically,  just 15 seconds after your home’s power goes off — and it stays on until utility service is restored.  You don’t have to do anything. 

Even if the power at your house goes out while you’re trying to get home, still inching your way home along I-16, waiting for an accident to be cleared at King George and Abercorn, or sandwiched in traffic from the Port, you don’t have to worry.  Your generator will start up automatically and run everything you count on in your house, just as if you were there. 

Imagine this scenario for the next time the power goes off in Savannah.

Wherever you live in the Savannah area, whether it’s downtown, in the suburbs, or out on Tybee Island, your lights and power are ON,  even if all your neighbors’  homes are dark.  You can heat and cool your home, cook, wash dishes and clothes, bathe, charge your phones and computers and keep your refrigerated and frozen food safe. And, if you or someone in your family counts on power to keep medicines cool or to power medical equipment, you are covered. 

Your whole family can watch television, listen to music, read books, play games, and use computers and phones to stay in contact with your larger world. Instead of rationing candles and flashlights, you can stay up after dark doing what you want and need to do. With your Generac whole home backup generator, you can even select to run only certain appliances during a power outage if you prefer. The choice is 100% up to you.

Our Savannah Georgia Clients Enjoy Peace of Mind

You worry when you lose contact with family and friends — those who count on you, or those you count on — even if it’s just temporary.  

It’s at times like this that you really appreciate being in your own home, sleeping in your own bed, eating the food you like, and relaxing with your favorite TV programs, books, and family, not to mention having phone and internet service to keep up with school or work and to stay in contact with family and friends. Keeping up with closings and conditions in and around  Savannah helps everyone in your household feel more at ease and connected. And, with your automatic home backup generator, your home can also be a haven for family, friends, and neighbors who don’t have power.
