We have A 22KW Generac, whole house generator & a 500 gallon propane tank buried in the yard. It was expensive but will run for a couple of weeks without refilling the propane tank.
That's an Awesome Set-up Al---Wish I had that !
I have to manually hit my transfer switch, start my Generator & plug it in. (6500 Watts)
Then select what all I want to power (everything but the range & Hot water Heater).
Just unplug it and call it a work generator, and don't run it at stupid hours, nobody will ever find out.In California their is a bill moving through Sacramento to ban home generators.

Make a soundproof box for it as well. Screw CA, I absolutely hate this state, and I'm born and raised here in Norcal.
I also have power outages all the time, so I put myself a synchronous type generator. It gives a more stable output voltage and is better suited for connecting sensitive to its variations digital equipment and other complex devices.
So since I don't know...what size generator would it take to keep a house running? Propane gas furnace, gas stove, fridge and freezers...I'm fine with a guesstimate. I know the cost of the switch and hookup fee. And brand choices, biggest one advertised around here is generac, not sure of their quality and pricing...as in overpriced like a pair of Nike shoes
That's really the way I'd like to go. Besides emergency backup power, I could probably find other uses for it around the farm.Ryan since you may know where there's a tractor and diesel fuel you might want to look at PTO Generators. Cheaper and little to no maintenance other than what you already do to the tractor.
