see the light

In the latest issue of Sierra Magazine there was a story about an Electrical Engineer who took back the darkness for four days by hooking his Prius to an inverter (changing the direct current from the car's battery to the alternating current needed for the lights and appliances).

They did point out that unless you have a degree in Electrical Engineering it might be a better idea to go with the more traditional Electric Generator to cover your emergency power needs. With a Transfer Switch and a few other Generator Accessories and a bit of fuel you can ride out the next storm, outage or what have you with your freezer keeping your food cold and the heater keeping your toes warm.

Don't let the temporary interruption of the power grid make you change everything about the way you live – not when you with a generator you can stay warm and connected to the modern world. Check it out and see if it is the right decision for you and your family.
