 How reliable is the electricity source in your community? With the increasing severity of natural disasters, we must be prepared to protect ourselves, our neighbors, and our community when the next wildfire, storm, or earthquake strikes! Join LGSEC on Thursday October 25th in Santa Rosa to learn how residents, local governments, and utilities can prepare for and recover from the next natural disaster. 

Electricity must be at its most reliable state as cities and counties across the U.S experience climate uncertainty. The total cost of sustained power interruptions for the United States is $44 billion per year, a 25% increase since 2002. Addressing the costs, planning, and solutions of power interruptions is a shared responsibility across multiple entities and all levels of government. 

Learn about local energy resilience, disaster response, and recovery solutions, along with recounts of the 2017 firestorms from our expert panel of local leaders and utility representatives. 

Continue the conversation on Friday October 26th at our free tour exploring local microgrid structures and storage systems at Santa Rosa Junior College.
