How To Get Involved In Solar Energy
It's cheaper than ever to get started with solar power... plus... you'll have instant backup electrical power in any outage... an endless supply of free electricity... and... lower electricity bills with everyday use!

Thomson, Illinois

Have you ever considered the consequences of losing power in your home for more than a few hours?

What about a few days, a week or even longer?

Let me tell you: It's more than just an inconvenience, it can be a serious--potentially deadly--threat to you and your family.

Hi, my name is Bill Heid. I'm the president and owner of Powerful Living. We are located at 815 West Main Street in Thomson, Illinois (right across from City Hall and the Police Station) and our phone number is: 815-259-4552.

I'm telling you all this because I want you to know I'm a real person, running a real business, in a real location. I have--perhaps like you--a family I care deeply about... and lately... I have been having some major concerns about their safety.

You see, there's a very real, looming threat we, as Americans, are all facing today...

Power Outages Due To Disasters...
Both Natural And Man-Made!

Every year, natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, snow storms and ice storms wreak havoc all across the country leaving millions of people without power.

For example, awhile back, while doing some research on outages, I pulled this quick snapshot from just a 4 month period:

In September 2008, it was major nationwide news when Hurricane Ike slammed in to the Gulf Coast of Texas, devastating Galveston and leaving 10,000 of its residents without a home... and... more than 2.5 million people in the Greater Houston area without power. But what's less well known, is that a full 13 days after Ike made landfall, nearly 1/4th of the residents in Houston (the 4th largest city in the U.S.) were still without power.

And still further, most don't realize that Ike also caused well over a million people to lose power in: Louisiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois... and... even as far away as Western Pennsylvania and Ontario, Canada.

Unpredictable Electricity In Ice Storms

Then there was the December 2008 ice storm of New England and Upstate New York that knocked out power to millions of people in those regions. It was the most severe ice storm in 21 years and left more than 100,000 people in the dark nearly a week after it hit.

Just a month later, in January of 2009 a major ice storm blasted parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky... producing power outages for over 2 million people. In Kentucky (which was one of the hardest hit areas) the ice storm claimed 24 lives... most due to carbon monoxide poisoning from power generators or kerosene heaters being used indoors.

These events--although major--are just the highlights from a four-month period. Recently, in late 2012, The U.S. Department of Energy reported that Hurricane (or Superstorm) Sandy knocked out power to more than 8.2 million homes and businesses.

And just year before, Hurricane Irene topped that with just shy of 8.38 million homes and businesses losing power.

Truly, once you start researching these power outage events, they seem nearly endless.

And I could go on and on for pages, but there's no need. The bottom line is: Almost no matter where you live in the U.S., it's not a matter of "if" you will be affected by some sort of natural disaster and lose power...

It's Only A Matter Of "When"!

However, it's my belief--and I'm certainly not alone on this--that the coming man-made outages could be far more disastrous than anything Mother Nature throws at us in the near future.

Here are the reasons why:

Our nation's power grid (which sends electricity to every state, county, city, neighborhood and house in America) is completely interconnected and highly vulnerable to collapse... especially during times of high demand.

All it takes is failure in one area--which can be caused by lightning strikes, simple equipment failure, operator error or transmission lines sagging and shorting out on trees--to cause a "domino effect" of failures over large areas.

It happened in 2003, when trees (in a rural area of Ohio) shorted out some lines, ultimately causing a cascading failure of more than 256 power plants... leading to the largest blackout in history. Called the Northeast Blackout of 2003, it left 55 million people without power in 8 U.S. States and parts of Canada.

You've also got Obama to worry about, who said this awhile back in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle...

"Under my plan of a cap and trade system,
electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket."

Doesn't that alarm you? If not, it should.

I mean, if he gets his way (and if recent history is any indicator, he very well may), his "energy plan" will (self-admittedly) literally force us to pay more for electricity... a doubling or tripling of electricity costs easily... and maybe more. Which is sure to cause shortages.

And last, but certainly not least, an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event, whether natural or initiated by low-life terrorists...

Could Throw The Whole Country Back To The 19th Century Almost Instantly!

The resulting chaos that would ensue if that were to happen is nearly unimaginable.

In any case, whether the power loss is caused by Mother Nature or is a man-made catastrophe, the only person you can truly count on is yourself to come to the rescue. The government proved that with its response--or non-response--to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

In fact, I watched a show on The Weather Channel titled, "When Weather Changed History: Hurricane Katrina"... where one news reporter explained the situation like this...

"We went from a modern, Internet-driven society
to third-world country in the space of 9 hours."

All this being the case, and because of my growing alarm for the safety of the good people of our country--and my own family, friends and customers--I commissioned a book that will tell you how you can have the protection, security and convenience of a solar-powered, self-sufficient, off-the-grid lifestyle when the power inevitably goes out. It's titled...
