This unit can also be set up with an ATS, but for now I was running 2 12ga extension cords from my barn to the cellar.

If you have the money for a whole house genset than do that instead, but the Honda was $1800, it has suited my needs, and I can set it up at either house.
These types of storms are so rare I'd rather not spend $6K if I don't have to.

The $1800 Honda still requires gasoline....is there a version of it that runs on natural gas or are the only natural gas models very large and thus very expensive?
