Last September, a massive heatwave shattered records in California. Los Angeles County saw its highest temperature ever recorded, an astonishing 121°F. Research shows the state is in a trend of longer, more intense heat waves – and the Bay Area is not immune.
While San Francisco is spared from the worst wildfire threats, it’s still subject to sweltering summer heat. All across the Bay Area, from large cities to small towns, electrical grids are straining under the new demands placed on them by these unprecedented conditions. All signs point to more of this in the future.
Luckily, Bay Area businesses aren’t helpless. They can use backup power to protect their investments.
