I'm thinking solar. Pragmatism 101. It's sunny in the Sunshine State. Even Google is on to this: The Sunshine State is Florida's nickname because of the state's geography and abundance of sunny weather.

Go figure.
Love…. You should see a solar panel farm after a hurricane…. Yeah go solar… stay dark
Solar is a scam forcing the traditional power companies to buy from the solar panels that use the grid owned and paid for by the traditional power companies .
Wake up!

That's left side of the bell curve thinking. You really aren't up to this V. The pragmatist in the floodzone has a raised cinderblock home with panels on the concrete/clay/metal roof and rain catchment systems, composting head, a garden, sat dish, and so forth. Buy once, cry once.

And self insurance. Can't afford it? Plenty of room on the plains. They're great!

There's a 100% solar community just outside North Ft Meyers that is already 100% back to full power.

V3 has his head firmly wedged up his ass, as usual.

" ... So when Hurricane Ian came barreling toward southwest Florida this week, it was a true test for the community. The storm obliterated the nearby Fort Myers and Naples areas with record-breaking surge and winds over 100 mph. It knocked out power to more than 2.6 million customers in the state, including 90% of Charlotte County.

But the lights stayed on in Babcock Ranch."

Not much out there, we checked it out about a year ago. My son was the PM for the construction of the town center. Very few homes built out there. Fortunately they are far from the coastline, as a matter of fact they are far from anything.
Their solar whatever is a warm and fuzzy grift on the established power grid. It is not self sustaining or stand alone.

If Babcock ranch had been a direct hit, there would be no power out there. I’ll be down that way next week to start the cleanup and take a look out there. Unfortunate for solar panels is that they are toxic to mine the raw materials, have a limited lifespan and are damaged in storms which require replacement. The recycling industry is just now coming up with solutions besides landfilling them.
