In 2008, Hurricane Ike, a Category 4 hurricane, decimated areas of Texas with 110 mile per hour winds. The storm tossed trees down like matchsticks. As a result, the coastal area of Texas was without power. CenterPoint Energy reported 90% of their customers were without power as a result of the storm.
The impact on Houston – the fourth-largest city in the nation, home to N.A.S.A. and the Texas Medical Center, the “energy capital of the world” – was huge. Damage has been estimated at $54 billion*, which would make Ike one of the costliest U.S. storms ever. *(Source: Houston Chronicle)
To CenterPoint’s credit, service was restored to 96% of its customers within four days. This was a solid response given the extensive damage. But four days without power can cause hardship at worst, and severe discomfort at best. What would four days without power mean for your family? Would your food spoil in your refrigerator? Would your family suffer from dehydration or severe cold due to excessive temperatures? What if there were a solution?
