That's the greatest thing about it... any way you go, the power companies will nearly beg you to sell power back to them.

I had a massive generator when I ran an IS dept.. on the order of 500KW, I think. It powered a 2000sq ft computer room with seventy equipment racks and two refrigerator-sized battery backups. Alabama Power would call me every month, wanting me to sell them power.
