ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need of using various sources of energy fuels in the generation and distribution of electricity during disasters in the U.S. It has been cited that the distribution of electric power by a single company is referred to as the single flower model. However, the disruptions of energy distribution has led to transitioning of the single flower model to the Garden Model which considers solar, wind, hydro and other renewable sources as other alternative for energy. U.S. President Barack Obama has supported the renewable energy strategy for emergency management by creating a provision integrated in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
