In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy here in NYC & Long Island I went without power at my house for a week and still there are hundreds of thousands without power. Last year I lost power for four days after Hurricane Irene....(yeah and some still say there's no such thing as global warming)
Additionally the gas line at the stations across the area extend for miles.
All of this has me longing for my Model S (Jan/Feb) but it also got me wondering what will I do if (when) this happens again.
I would love to put solar panels on my house but have too many tall trees around so that's not an option. So I guess I'm stuck with getting a generator to charge my car. Has anyone else considered getting a backup generator to charge their Model S in the event of a catastrophic power failure? If so, what types of models would work the best and charge the quickest?
