“Since the invention of the electricity, engineers made lots of mistakes. The same cannot be said about electricity”

This project has one simple goal: to educate Americans about power generators.

Me thinking about the future of autonomous energy

My name is Ben and I am the founder of MyNextGenerator.com.

Born and raised in Zanesville, Ohio, a city where power outages are very common. As a fan of preparedness and experienced electronic engineering technician, I know for sure: autonomous energy cannot be underestimated.

Every household should care about his backup energy like his or her life depends on it (and there is a number of situations when this ceases to be a figure of speech.)
