To disconnect from the power grid I pull the power meter.

If the power grid doesn't come back on with in a day or 2 then what?

For portable backup power I use my LiFePO4 starting batteries that have inverters attached to them.
For more backup power I fire up the 7kw generator, which has a optima battery and 1000w pure sine wave inverter. No point in running a 7kw gen when you only need a little power.
