Candles Caravan Lamps & Braai
  Advantages Precautions
Candles Cheapest Be careful of the flame around children
    Ware the Flame is small but can burn the house down
Caravan Lamps Gives Great Light Need a long lead from the car to the Place you need lit
  Next time you use the car it battery is charged up for the next load - shedding If used for a very long time it can drain your Car Battery
Braai Great to get the Family talking again Buy a Fire Kettle
  Good way to turn around the Negativeness of load shedding – have a party Buy a Fire Pot


Gass
Most Convenient NEVER PUT THE GAS BOTTLE ON THE STOVE
Can Easily handle the big Power Needs,
Cooking, Heating , Hot Water
Be Careful of the Flame around children
  Beware the Flame is small but can burn the house down
DANGER CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING
This is Very easy to understand . . .
Any flame burns up oxygen, (in the air)  . .  you when you breath, you breath Air & Oxygen,
Oxygen is what you live on. the air is of No Value
If your Flame uses all the oxygen then you got No Oxygen to keep you ALIVE . . All thats left is air WITHOUT oxygen


ALWAYS USE ANY GAS APPLIANCE WITH GOOD VENTILATION
Rule # 1  AT LEAST ONE WINDOW STAYS OPEN !!!

Generator's
Advantages Disadvantages
Scalability Refuelling is Dangerous
Can handle as much as you willing to pay for Noisy
Easy to install Poor installations are very dangerous
  Fuel expensive
  ALWAYS KEEP A QUARTER OF THE GENERATOR CAPACITY AS RESERVE : NEVER LOAD THE GENERATOR TO FULL CAPACITY
  Starting the generator is always the weak point
DANGER Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
CARBON DIOXIDE POISONING
This is Very easy to understand . . .
Any Engine burns up oxygen, (in the air)  . .  you when you breath, you breath Air & Oxygen,
Oxygen is what you live on. the air is of No Value
If your Engine Exhaust Fumes are not led into the open air the Room Fills with Exhaust Fumes and the engine uses all the oxygen then you got No Oxygen to keep you ALIVE . . . All that's left is air WITHOUT oxygen
and with a Petrol Engine also poisonous Carbon Dioxide Gas


ALWAYS build a good exhaust into the open air
Rule # 1  AT LEAST ONE WINDOW STAYS OPEN !!!

Inverter's
Advantages Disadvantages
Scalability Expensive
Automatic or manual if preferred YOU HAVE TO PLAN CAREFULLY
  You need an Electrician to split your Electricity into “Clean : Inverter“ and “Standard : Eskom “
Size of inverter determines how much you can use PLAN CAREFULLY HERE : THIS IS THE HEART OF THE INSTALLATION ** WHAT YOU BUY IS YOUR LIMIT **
  You need an Electrician to do the installation
Size of the battery bank Determines how long you can use it for You can add Batteries over time
  Expensive Batteries have a very long Lifespan
Can be scaled up with time to a full solar system  
   
SILENT  
   
RELATIVE SMALL INSTALLATION SPACE  
SAFE  
Quality of the Power is better than what ESKOM Currently supplies
