I have inverter that can cover our basic need, not luxuries like AC, during black out. It costs $200. Between the day time back up feature of our solar panel and 2 EVs, we will be fine. That's worth it. Spending more to be green is fake green in my book.What would you consider "worth it" for running water/internet/food during a pandemic?
The onboard charger in The Tesla Model 3/Y, and the Bolt, are good for 7 kW of power. Here in central Virginia we get a few power outages each year. Not a problem in the winter, as we have LPG heat. During the heat of summer, it could cost us some frozen food. During the pandemic, replacing that frozen food may not be possible, or safe. That is why I am thinking of getting one of these for a grand.

I'd much rather I could pull silent, clean power from our car.
We have used 11 kWh in the last 24 hours.
