When you lose power, you lose revenue by the minute. Anything beyond that can immediately cause internal chaos, especially for power-dependent jobs and operations. Power shortages can be the result of many things but, more often than not, it’s the effect of heavy weather, power surges, and natural disasters.
The Philippines is no stranger to such cases. More so, the country is prone to landslides during the rainy seasons. It wasn’t too long ago when the Baybay City landslide had made waves in the national news after affecting its nearby communities.
While it’s hard to say whether such a tragic incident could have been prevented, one thing’s for certain: disasters are unpredictable. They affect all sorts of industries that are important for our society to function, such as:
- Digital E-Commerce
- Data Centers
- Food Services
This is the reason why power generators are revered for being industry savers. Despite being pricey to both own and maintain, no one can argue that power shortages can happen anytime and anywhere. The best way to future-proof our businesses is by investing in generator sets, making them an efficient contingency for sudden power outages.
Power shortages in 2021
Back in 2021, the power supply in Luzon had episodes of falling into yellow and red alerts, which was said to be due to the high electricity demand outweighing the supply. Some reports also suggested that it was due to outdated energy systems (reliance on fossil fuel plants) that are not flexible enough to serve the increasing power demand.
That same year, businesses were also struggling to recover from pandemic losses. Healthcare facilities were also affected by these power shortages, especially those housing vaccines and patients in critical conditions.
Abroad, similar losses were also reported, albeit much larger scale. In fact, businesses lose $27 billion per year within essential markets in the US. Although many industries have gone on to adapt through work-from-home set-ups, many small companies still suffer major drawbacks from power losses.
