I am not looking forward to the reset of the clocks or my TV cable box when I lose power & the switch over to generator but to use a battery backup UPS I would need at least 3 of them. Unless I can find them cheap some where, I will just live with it.

I have heard Onan to be a good brand for commercial units but residential units have had some problems, Hell they all have some sort of problem.

Too bad you couldn't get a answer on the usage for the outage, it would be nice to know.

I asked recently what the bill was for the time encompassing the power outage and haven't heard back. It is an Onan powered unit.
