If you live in Winston-Salem you know that while our climate is mild, our location between North Carolina’s Atlantic Coast and the Blue Ridge Mountains means that when it comes to weather, we see it all. Spring and summer bring fast-moving thunderstorms, tornados, and remnants of tropical storms. Winter brings snow and ice storms.
If you want to know how difficult it can be in Winston-Salem without power, you don’t have to go too far back. especially if yours was one of more than 80,000 Triad homes that lost power for days during back-to-back ice storms that hit in February 2021.
On February 13th, heavy ice sent limbs and entire trees crashing to the ground, taking down hundreds of power lines and seriously damaging houses and cars throughout the city and county. Hotel rooms filled up quickly. When your food and supplies ran low, your phone battery dipped below 10% and your house was too cold, you knew it was time to pack up your chargers, grab your kids and the dog, and look for a kind-hearted friend with power to take you in.
But even if your car hadn’t been damaged and your driveway wasn’t blocked, you weren’t home free. Roads were iced and traffic lights were out everywhere. Fallen trees and car crashes blocked Silas Creek Parkway,
Country Club Road, and other major roads, along with smaller streets in neighborhoods across the city and county.
Without power, your life in Winston-Salem came to a halt, and for thousands of people, it stayed that way. Duke Energy repair crews were hindered by treacherous conditions, and you were likely without power for three days or more. If you were lucky, you might have gotten power back before the second, even stronger ice storm hit on February 17th.
You promised yourself that before the next season brought new weather and power challenges, you’d explore an altogether better option — uninterrupted power with an automatic, whole home backup generator from Canter Power Systems.
Think about how your life would change if you never had to worry about being without electricity in Winston-Salem - ever again. If the power goes out, for any reason, you can relax in the comfort and protection of your own home while your life goes on normally, even if power is out for an extended period.
Whether it’s a major storm or a sunny day blip, your whole home backup generator turns itself on automatically, just seconds after the power goes off — and stays on until utility service is restored. Even if the power goes out while you’re still inching your way home along I-40, US 421, or Highway 52, 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 next time the power goes off in Winston-Salem.
Whether you live inside Winston-Salem city limits or in a more rural part of Forsyth County, Davidson County, Stokes County, or Davie 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 friends and family. 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.
When dangerous storms or other power outages happen in Winston-Salem, your life can quickly get complicated and stressful. School, work, and transportation schedules are disrupted. You worry when you lose contact with family and friends — those who count on you, or those that 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. Staying informed about closings and conditions in and around Winston-Salem and Forsyth County helps everyone in your household feel more at ease and connected.
