Owning a generator makes lots of sense if you can put a price on comfort, safety and lost productivity during an outage. When the local utility continues saying ”a few days” when they really mean a few weeks, it’s difficult to know how much to invest and when.
For around $2000 plus the fuel that would have been required to operate it, this product would have covered our thirteen-day outage in Memphis for about $160 per day. That’s assuming you bought it and used it only that one time. However, it’s cheap insurance if you operate a home-based business and need to provide steady, reliable power for computers as well as a few other appliances.
