backup power for gas stations standardize the connector

Page 1 of 2  
if i were king, i would establish a standardized connector that all gas stations and other critical infrastructure would be required to have ready to accept backup generator power for the pumps
the feds or local govt or even the oil company or individual , could drive up with a generator truck with a mating standard connector
all gas stations would be required to have this connector
when i become king, i will make it so

If you were the king of Florida you would have already done it. Florida law requires generator back up for any gas station on an evacuation route.

I think His Royal Markness is talking about a "power inlet" and they are already made. But, HRH would standardize, which is good.
Now, make people gas up the car, and fill the gas cans before the storm.

Exactly! I have been bumfoozled about that since the storm. Just as soon as vehicles couild move again everybody was lining up for gas. What, they didn't know the storm was coming? Are the moroons? Do other things to get ready but can't be bothered to fill the vehcile and maybe a few jerry cans beforehand?

The only thing is, with the storm surge catching so many vehicles still sitting in the "flood plain", fulkl tanks would just have made a bad situation worse. Fill the tanks and get the h3!! out of Dodge!!!!

I should add, a fair number of large grocery stores in FL, now have large(MW sized) diesel generators as backups.

this disaster got me thinking.
all high rise buildings should be required to have a back up generator to run some minimal lights and power one elevator..... rotating so each elevator can be brought to the lobby so no one gets stuck
gas stations should be required to have a back up generator to run the pumps. like florida...
essential services shouldnt be totally dependent on the power grid

I suppose all your groceries and supplies come in on rickshaws ore mule trains too? And all services you may require are also fuel-less?

No thanks, 24 miles each way to work. I'll wave as I pass you though.

I'm three blocks from work, but I use to be thirteen miles and my biking co-worker was 23 miles.
Waving is better than some <censored> motorists do. Irritates them to think that I made them miss the next light. Upsets them even more when I pass them at the next traffic jam.

Well that's not the only problem with high rises and lack of power. Most large buildings have a water tower on the roof which is filled by electric pumps from the city supply. No power means, after a short time, no water for the apartments. It's not just drinking water; water for flushing toilets is a major problem as one super complained to a reporter. The moron reporter just fresh out of school failed to grasp the concept.

And behead Bloomberg and his tree-planting mania.
More seriously, if the tree specialists on This Old House can simply look at a tree and point to evidence of disease and recommend the tree be removed why can't the local Parks Department (or whatever you have in your area) do the same? Even to my untrained eye many of the broken trees (snapped in two) show evidence of poor health.
Have you looked at some of the roots of the uprooted trees? Very shallow with a compact root ball. Maybe it's the type of tree. From my childhood I can remember two poplars that my father attempted to kill with little immediate success. When he finally did the deed and the dead tree was removed the center root went down about 20 feet, about 30% of the total height. Far deeper than any of the uprooted trees I see.

In article <c083434e-582e-4559-95c3-

Actually if it was real important and there was a spare generator available*, quite easy for an electrician to quickly connect a generator to the electric panel.
So MORE important would be to have generators available for this specific use. Or to require them to have back-up generators.
And that is a local building code thing. Your local/state government can require back-up generators for gas stations just like they do for emergency lighting, and high-rise fire pumps and elevators (new construction).
