Super Simple Emergency Power For Homeowners

Super Simple Emergency Power For Homeowners

If you search for a standby generator for backup power, you instantly find results like the following:

As the owner of this company, I just moved to the Midwest with my family. So far we’ve experienced more tornado warnings than I can remember, and have lost power several times.

Despite all that, I’ll happily die on this hill: $7,000 + a large installation fee is way to expensive for backup power in a home when a storm hits.

When it comes to power, here’s what I know people care about:

  • Peace of mind in case of a storm
  • Keeping the fridge on so food doesn’t spoil
  • Keeping the wife happy (this should probably be the top bullet point)
  • Having a little extra power left over to power some lights, and maybe some other small equipment and phone/laptop chargers

What Does The Data Show?

Other than the above list, running most other equipment is unnecessary during an outage. According to the US Energy Information Administration, people in the United States lost power an average of about 5 hours in 2022. (That’s 5 hours total throughout the year - not 5 hours per outage.)

Now that might not seem like much, but if you allow a few hours to go by, you might have to start replacing food. If you get caught in a legitimate storm where power can be out for week or more - forget about it. You need some kind of steady backup power.

However, it’s an illusion created by big businesses that says we need to have a huge home standby generator in order to weather the next power outage.

In fact, the opposite is true for the vast majority of people. We’ve come up with a unique power solution that can help you power what you need - without breaking the bank. Let’s dive in.

What’s The Solution?

Here’s what you need to power the most critical parts of your home during an outage:

  1. A small portable generator (wattage may vary based on your needs, but generally from 1kW - 8kW of continuous power)
  2. A high quality, durable Generator Though-The-Wall Kit
  3. One or more extension cords, depending on how many pieces of equipment you need to power

And that’s it! Materials-wise, it’s that simple.

No expensive electrician, no dealing with scheduling contractors. All you need is the ability to conduct a simple installation of the Wall Kit, and you’ll have power when the storm hits.

Here’s what this looks like:


Simply start your generator of choice, connect it via a proper extension cord, and enjoy power to your home by plugging in whatever you want via the 6 convenient outlets.

Of note: the Through-The-Wall kit is a 30 amp connection, so you’ll need the proper extension cords based on the generator you have.

So what are you waiting for? Don’t wait until the next power outage to get your house in order. Protect your home and family with this simple, easy, and affordable solution.
