EMERGENCY POWER NEEDS: As we know, local elecrical power is subject to power outages due to bad weather, equipment failures, etc. Unfortunately, very long term or even semi-permanent outages could well occur in event of an EMP or Cyber attacks on our power grids. We are now livng in turmoil times (see TruNews.com) and certainly all wish to have some form of back up power readily available when needed to run various electrical equipment or appliances, lights, etc. Running your home refrigerator or freezer as little as 1 hour a day as example, could prevent spoilage of costly food. We suggest you acquire a fuel-less generator. Even if you currently have a gasoline operated unit, please remember the smaller and less costly versions of these usually are not built to withstand day in and day out usage. Furthermore, they are very costly to operate, especially with per gallon fuel prices we are now confronted with. Plus gasoline may not be locally available under emergency circumstances. Of course the larger permanent mount units (such as the Guardian brand) for home or business that operate on natural gas or propane would be an asset, although considerably higher in cost than most portable brands.
