Welcome Keith. You might look to go to a more old school, non-powered style of backup living for your situation now if you're planning around solar flare activity. If there were activity to knock out the grid, why would you think it wouldn't fry your generator and/solar panels. Unless you've got them very protected they should be toast just the same and you'll still be in the same spot. Setting up non-powered means also to keep on living in some kind of comfort and safety compared to the millions around that won't be seems a wise choice to go with your powered means if they fail.
Hi Keith and welcome. I was thinking the same thing.. That a solar emp would fry everything up to and including some pacemakers. So your generator, etc would be toast. I've grappled with the same question and have come to the conclusion that being able to sustain with zero electric is the first thought and then go up from there.

I'm not a scientist, nor have I researched solar activity. Would a flair act the same as an emp and fry everything or just knock out the major grids?
