Abstract

In 1996, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), developed a program with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide photovoltaic electrical power in disasters. In support of this effort, DOE purchased eight PV-generator trailers which were constructed in 1998 and supplied to FEMA for deployment in disaster response efforts. This report describes past and present use of the trailers, their depot location, list maintenance data, and the viability of the trailers in a disaster.
