It is great that the generators are pre-deployed for a power outage. The weak link in the idea is the ready availability of fuel to run the units. Most- if not all - fuel storage facilities have no back up power. Hopefully there is discussion to have transfer switches installed at the storage facilities and a generator of the required size designated for the fuel facility during an extended outage. A review of the After Action Report of the New Hampshire 2008 Ice Storm identified fuel availability as being problematic.
