We have the technology to give each and every home solar panels, which would prevent this sort of disaster.
Life-saving energy should not be “for-profit.”
Even in the developing nation of Benin, they are working to give residents clean, safe solar energy. Surely a prosperous nation such as the United States could do this if a less technologically advanced nation can do it. Put our tax dollars to good use! I don’t mind paying higher taxes for something that will benefit me in the long run, such as access to medicine and low-cost power that won’t fail during bad weather.
Kudos to the people who worked to restore the power.
