During a power outage, it’s important to prioritize the appliances and electrical loads that are necessary for safety and basic needs. Some appliances and loads that you may want to consider backing up with a generator or other backup power source during a power outage include:


  • Refrigerator: A refrigerator is essential for preserving food and preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Freezer: A freezer can help preserve food for an extended period of time and can be helpful for storing perishable items.
  • Lights: Access to lighting can be important for safety, especially during a power outage.
  • Heating and cooling: Depending on the climate, heating or cooling may be necessary to maintain a comfortable temperature in a home.
  • Medical equipment: If you or a family member rely on medical equipment, such as a nebulizer or oxygen concentrator, it’s important to ensure that these devices have a backup power source.
  • Communication devices: Having access to communication devices such as a phone or computer can be important for staying connected and getting updates during a power outage.
