Due to the increase in extreme weather events because of climate change, there is a possibility for power outages to occur. Power outages have the ability to greatly interfere with daily life and can severely affect the way society functions for a period of time. This backup power storage center will be located by nearby buildings to power them in the event of a power outage. It will collect and store large amounts of power through sources like geothermal energy where it will stay until it needs to be used. This power storage center will specifically be used to power priority targets during blackouts like hospitals and traffic lights. Its capacity should be enough to last at least a week depending on how many things it is powering. Between uses, it will continually store energy. These backup storage centers will be convenient and readily available when needed.
