Power Management

 Depending on your needs and interest in conserving energy use during a power failure you  may not require a large generator.  Our home has gas appliances and we donít do a wash load or work in the shop while the power is out.  By watching what we do we are able back up our 2400 sq ft. home with a small 5.5kW diesel generator.
