I've been looking at getting a generator for my home, inside the Power Shutoff Zone deep up Mission Canyon. I am wondering if anyone has installed a Standby Home Generator? I see the commercials for Generac generators and we personally have with their small portable unit (GP2200I) as our current backup, but their home units are newer. I've heard positive reviews from Cumming, Yamaha, and Kohler who also top generator producers consumers rave about. Anyone locally with home generator or a backup power plan? I'm looking for reviews, sound level output, are you able to get a maintenance technician out to SB, natural gas vs diesel.

Batteries...there are less costly options than overpriced powerwalls. Costs over service life of ten to twelve years are net positive. With solar even less. What are your annual ice vehicle costs?

Wow. You would think we all lived in the back woods of Kentucky by this conversation. Hard to believe we live in a super wealthy sophisticated town in the USA and we are all worrying about this. Something seems really wrong if our utility companies can't keep the power on. Power through fear.

Propaganda will get you nowhere. "Power through fear".... what a line of crap spoken like someone from the backwoods of Kentucky. You keep worrying as long as you please, I'll keep the light on for you.
