Lowes Electric: Rebuilding Their Community After the Fires
October of 2017 brought horrific wildfires to many parts of California, where whole communities were consumed. The damage was estimated to be in the millions. Many families lost their homes, barely escaping with their lives, and yet, they have returned to rebuild. But, without the basic necessity of electricity, it is darn near impossible. Fortunately, temporary power pole installation is going on strong, with the help of Lowes qualified electricians.
Some homeowners who have returned are using RV’s and trailers for shelter while they clean up and rebuild. Needing temporary electric poles, many have turned to rental companies to help bring power to their location.

After the Tubbs wildfire which ran from October 8th to October 26th, 2017, many electrical contractors raised their prices because the demand was so high, even going so far as to price gouge, taking advantage of the desperation of thousands of families. But, not Lowes Electric. Wanting to help their community rebuild, they offered a 25% discount, challenging other businesses to do the same. Their kindness was highlighted in a story written for a local news. You can read it here.
The Tubbs fire is considered one of California's most devastating fires. By the end of October 2017, it was finally contained, but had burned 36,810 acres and 22 lives had been lost. It consumed 5,643 structures, 2,800 of them in Santa Rosa alone. Upon returning to their neighborhoods, families had probably the hardest challenge in their lives to cleanup and rebuild.
When disaster strikes, recovering can seem impossible, but with the right help, it is attainable. A temporary power solution is the first step to getting back on solid ground, whether it's a single family home, or a commercial industry, both are vulnerable until the power is on.
