In October 2015, Chuck of San Juan Capistrano, California received notice from SDG&E of an upcoming prolonged planned power outage. The planned outage would start at 8 p.m. and end around 9:00 a.m. the following morning. Chuck and his wife were concerned that his CPAP treatment would be disrupted as the CPAP wouldn’t run without power.
Purchasing or renting a gasoline generator and running it for over 8 hours overnight would be costly, noisy, smelly, and disrupt the neighbors in such a close together quiet community. Luckily, Battery Backup Power, Inc. of Costa Mesa, California had recently launched its rental program. The company’s uninterruptible power supplies with extended backup time energy storage modules were available for rent in Southern California.
Chuck called Battery Backup Power, Inc. (855-330-7799) and had a medical grade 700 watt uninterruptible power supply with two extended backup time energy storage modules delivered and setup by Battery Backup Power, Inc. Ross Modglin of Battery Backup Power, Inc. helped Chuck find the appropriate size rental unit and number of extended backup time energy storage modules based on Chuck’s equipment and required backup power time.
According to Chuck, “the unit powered my CPAP from 08:00 p.m. when the power went off and was still going when the power came back on at 09:00 a.m. the next morning”. A Battery Backup Power, Inc. employee came to break down and pick up the rental unit when Chuck was done with it.
The regular price to buy the system Chuck had access to is $1,499.99 on the Battery Backup Power, Inc. web store.
The rental price for the same system in Southern California is $39.99 per day plus a $69.99 delivery/setup/pickup/breakdown fee. The unit plugs right into a regular wall socket and automatically provides emergency backup power to anything plugged into it.
