Automatic Whole House Backup Power Generators Means
Energy Independence in Wilmington

If you live in Wilmington or on nearby Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, or Kure Beach, you expect to experience power outages during hurricane season, when tropical storms in the Atlantic travel north. As disruptive as these can be, when storms make landfall along the coast, life without a generator becomes difficult and dangerous.

By the time Hurricane Florence made landfall at Wrightsville Beach winds of 105 mph on Friday, September 14, 2018, more than than 90% of Wilmington and New Hanover County’s population of 250,000 had already lost power. If you lived here, you were probably one of them. While power outages climbed and temperatures heated up, Wilmington and the surrounding area were completely cut off from the rest of the state when I-40 and all other roads to the city flooded and became impassable.

By Sunday night you would have been one of thousands of residents who were stuck in hot, damaged homes with no power, and hemmed in by downed trees and power lines. With food and water running dangerously low, state emergency-management officials were forced to use airlifts and boats to get supplies to you.

AT&T mobile phone service stayed on, but without power, life came to a halt and stayed that way. Stores and restaurants were closed. There was no cooking, no refrigeration, no A/C, no TV, and no way to charge up devices. Duke Power estimated that power in Wilmington could be largely restored by September 28th – a full two weeks after Florence made landfall.

It felt like the beginning of a long upward climb, but you promised yourself that once you got life under control, you were going to install a Generac whole home backup generator from Canter Power Systems.

When you’ve got a backup Generator in Wilmington

Think about how your life would change if you never had to worry about being without power service in Wilmington - ever again. If the power goes out – for any reason – you can relax in the comfort and protection of your own home as your life goes on as normal, even if power is out for days or weeks.

Whether it’s a major storm or a sunny day blip, your whole home backup generator turns itself on automatically, just seconds after your home’s power goes off — and it stays on until utility service is restored. Even if the power goes out while you’re still inching your way home along I-40 you don’t have to worry. Your generator will start automatically and run everything you count on in your house, just as if you were there.

Imagine this scenario next time the power goes off in Wilmington.

Whether you live downtown, Wrightsville Beach, or further out in Brunswick or Pender County 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 count on power to keep medicines cool or operate assistive equipment, you’re 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 a 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.
