We tried this in an industrial park/complex. The issue seems when you start to run cables across property lines/boundaries. That is when NERSA has a hissie fit. Because then you are not just generating but also distributing power. From what I understand these are 2 separate issues/licences . A shopping mall for instance is on one property, so does not have this problem.So gated communities could make it a "free" service and push the price up for something else. Not the nicest way, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
Got my 900w running now, it's more fuel efficient then my 2.8.The generator is on, music is pumping and the wife is blow drying a clients hair.
About to make supper with the air fryer and microwave.
If you are considering getting a generator, go 5Kva for residential use as you will be so grateful that it can handle anything you throw it, even a 12BTU aircon. Petrol is around 2-3L per hour for us but we only use it for work so it pays for itself. (Wife runs her hair salon from our property).
Generator reports it has done 67 hours since we bought it in March 2019. That is 67 business interrupting hours.
