Thanks for the 411! I'm thinking about buying a trailor hitch, attaching a Thule-type carrier (ventilated), and putting 1 or 2 EU2000i generators in it. I don't always have to lug this around but it sure would be nice to have when needed.

I think you are asking the wrong question. I think the question is how much will efficiently fit on your southern roof and can you afford that. Then after you get it installed for fun you can say. "My 5kWH AC PV system can annually power my car 20,000 miles."

Generating power by connecting through grid is a great idea.
