In the past, home generators were a piece of machinery that folks who lived in remote areas would have. When the power went out, which tends to happen often in extremely rural areas, folks would drag out their big, loud gas-powered generator and start running electrical cords from the lights and the refrigerator out a window or a door and to the generator.
Nowadays, even people who live in the city are benefiting from a generator installation. Salt Lake City residents realize power outages are a problem that affect more than just the outskirts of town. Although it may not be feasible for 20 people on the block to pull out their noisy portable generators, there is another option.
