    Just 30 minutes ago we in Leeds had a once second power cut it all over the news and Facebook.Nearly all major website and print media are reporting we may face winter blackout and we need to prepare for it.

    We at work have two tier 3 and one 4 datacenters and all the generators have had major service and diesel tank top up with winter additives.I am just wondering is time to invest in a Honda generator ? Funny Honda have a campaign going :Blink:Blackout | Energy | Honda (UK)

    It's been in the news recently, electricity generation overcapacity to reduce from about 14% now to about 4% in 3 years.
