“How can communities build centralized locations to protect against electricity blackouts?”

As the climate becomes more erratic, so will the natural disasters that follow it, whether it be wildfires or hurricanes. As a result, communities will have to take measures to adapt to these new problems. One way to accomplish this is to set up Resilience Centers where generators can be brought in to operate essential services. The utility Pacific Gas and Electric in Northern California is looking at this method to increase resiliency against wildfires.
