In the name of “never again,” I am going to buy an emergency power plant next week. We can live comfortably in one room plus the bathroom in emergencies. The hot water and fireplace run on natural gas, though if a portable emergency plant could heat a little space heater and a hot plate, that probably would be good. So, I want enough power for a couple of electric lamps, a space heater, and a hot plate.
They have more expensive and cheaper ones. Price appears to vary according to storage capacity, watt hours or some such.
What would you do? And do I just periodically charge this thing up in anticipation of another emergency that we may not see again for 5 years? Or do I get a little gasoline powered generator and charge up the power supply only in the event of an emergency?
I’d ask my senator, but he just got back from Cancun and I don’t want to bother him right now.
