Yes, but of course that would be the least of our worries, after things like heating, refrigeration, water supply and purification, etc, etc.

Most critical place have a diesel back up. They would actually not be without electricity as long as the diesel kept coming. Hopefully the deisel supplier has his own diesel engine for backup pumping to fill the trucks.

Wind power in Australia is not too bad.
We have hydro electric power in Northern Canada. The problem here is keeping condensation off the pc from the damp igloo roof.

When the electricity goes out, us laptop owners are going to take over the world. We will be the only people with computers.
