With more than 150,000 power outages across Western Australia as a result of severe storms earlier this month, many households found themselves literally left in the dark.
And while Western Power crews worked around the clock to restore power around the state, thousands remained without electricity for up to five days after the June 10 and 12 storms.
Living in a society where we have all of our basic needs covered and want for little, we take simple things like electricity for granted.
When a severe weather event such as that that hit Western Australia occurs, there is no knowing how long you will be without power, so it is a good idea to look at an alternative energy source, such as a generator.
A generator from your local Kennards Hire will hook you back up to a power supply, ensuring that you can still use essential household items - including, fridges, washing machines, lights and electronic goods - until your normal supply is reconnected.
There are a range of generators available for hire depending on what you require, and Kennards Hire can provide expert advice to help you select the correct one for your needs.
