I'm in Boomerdawgs camp.

We have brown outs and occasional outages in my little corner of suburbia... it would be nice to have juice to keep the lights on, fridge running, and able to cook dinner without worrying.

I don't think relying on it for when a Hurricane or massive forest fire is coming your way is wise, but having that little bit of coverage for brown outs and the like would be most welcome in my book (and as Boomer points out, a great deal cheaper than a dedicated battery system or even having a backup generator installed).

You still need a cut off put in place (so your house doesn't energize the lines and cook an unsuspecting line man), but again, way cheaper than all the other options.
