Solar energy can play a crucial role in disaster resilience and mitigation. In the aftermath of a disaster, power outages are common and can last for days or even weeks, leaving affected communities without access to electricity. This can make it difficult to access critical services such as hospitals, communication networks, and emergency response systems.
Solar energy can provide a reliable source of power during these times, as solar panels can continue to generate electricity even if the grid goes down. This can help ensure that critical services remain operational and that people can stay connected and informed during and after a disaster.
