EMP long-term blackout: effects, preparation, remedies
If a Carrington type solar X-class flare event were to happen today, or the deployment of a weaponized EMP, it would wipe out the grid and unprotected electronics, not just for hours, but for many months or even years. Distributed energy solutions are not immune if they are not properly insulated from such an event.

Infowars has prepared this excellent brief video
compiling material related to
what would happen if a Carrington type solar X-class flare event were to happen
today, or the deployment of a weaponized electromagnetic
pulse (EMP), which would wipe out the grid and
unprotected electronics, not just for hours, but for many months or even years.
I wish they wouldn't have titled it "American Blackout," because this
issue is a global issue, and the material they provide in the video is globally
Whether we talk about a terrorist event or a solar storm experts agree that an EMP event is not a matter of if but when. Considering that the power grid across the United States is unprotected an emp event will knock out our power for an unforeseeable future; immediately sending American life back to the dark ages. We invited experts James Wesley Rawles, Joel Skousen and Matt Stein to explain the most important actions one has to take in order to prepare for such catastrophic times.

Electric fields won't penetrate a conductor, so if the trash can
is properly made and closed, there is no need at all to wrap the
electronics inside with anything. They don't need to be protected
from the can, because the voltage between the can and its contents
will not change. Also, I've never seen a stainless steel trash can
-- if they exist, they would be really expensive. All of the metal
trash cans I've seen have been galvanized steel, which would work
just as well as stainless.
The video points out that a cheap and effective way to protect unused
electronics is to put them in a stainless steel trash can, which acts as a Faraday
shield, after you wrap the electronics in something to insulate them from the
stainless steel. If you know an EMP event is coming (Solar Flares that have
happened have a propagation time of about three days), then you un-plug all your
electronics and wind the cords into relatively small coils so they don't act to
collect and propagate the pulse.
There are relatively inexpensive things (an ounce of prevention is better than a
pound of cure) that governments and utilities can do to protect the grid, but
most are not acting to do these because there isn't enough public
support/momentum behind implementing these remedies; so as of the present, you
need to plan for the grid to go down for many months or years in case of such an
Of course, each home and car having a free
energy device powering it would be a great remedy, being a distributed
energy solution that makes the grid not as crucial. That's a large reason why
I've continued for 13.5 years in the career that I am in, founding (Pure Energy
Systems) PES Network, Inc., for "Finding and Facilitating the Best Exotic
Free Energy Technologies." But even these free energy solutions (including
the conventional modalities of solar, wind, etc.) can be stricken by an EMP, if
they have electronics, which most do.
The cords are your antennae to propagate the EMP back to your device. So not
only do you need to have the electronics within the free energy device
"hardened" against EMP, but you need to have a way to electrically
disconnect from that device, close to the device, preventing that propagation
from the cord to the device.
