I had the Power Co_op remove some trees that where close and on the lines. This I hope helps stop are power going out so much. In 2017 my power was out 68 days. We can run off grid and we do run off grid about 90% of the house in the winter. The summer we can run about 80% of are power needs off grid. AC is a killer for us and here in the south it get hot. I get sick if I get over heated. So staying cool is a MUST!
