Jeff Yago has over 30 years experience in the solar and alternative energy field and has appeared on this show before. His hundreds of solar and emergency preparedness articles have been published by Backwoods Home, Home Power, Energy Users News, and Mother Earth News.
In addition to Jeff being a licensed professional engineer, and certified energy manager, he is also NABCEP certified as a solar professional and a licensed electrician. Jeff lives with his wife Sharon in a solar hoem they designed and built in 1994 near Richmond Virginia.
The current Sept issue of Backwoods Home Magazine features his article about the concerns for national electric grid reliability and why we should not rely on emergency generators.
Jeff feels that there are far more problems related to grid reliability than the public is being told, and few electric utilities are doing anything to harden their systems even though they are well aware of the increased risks.
