This is a place for people who are interested in prepping, without necessarily wanting to turn into bunker dwellers.
Although there's nothing wrong with that if it's what you prefer.

Backup power sources

My prepping strategy has always been to not need things like generators or backup batteries. Partly for simplicity, but also due to expense.

I'm re-thinking that since the Texas blackout. (Even though I was mostly unaffected.)

I'm still not convinced it's necessary, but I can see the advantage.

Probably, rather than a petroleum-fueled generator, I'd be more likely to go for a backup battery with solar charging capabilities. Of course, what I'd love is a Tesla solar roof and a Tesla power wall-- that's probably not going to happen.

What are your thoughts on backup power like this? Do you think it's essential, a luxury, or is it better to structure your preps so it's completely unnecessary?
