As far as what I can add, make sure one has a back-up power source, I have a Generic which runs on natural gas...
The concept is electricity driven.... I use gas generators. More efficient, and not dependent upon a utility service. During Matthew a few years back, NG service was deliberately shut off. The ground saturation created a risk of pipeline breakage. At one point, I had to go 30 miles to get gasoline, but it was available off the X.
I use a little 3.5k generator for the freezer and refrigerator. 3-4 hours a day, and its good enough. My 7k runs the house as needed...
