My hunting cabin sits about 700 ft from the nearest power line and the power company wants $20-25k to run power. It currently has no electricity which isn't a huge deal but we'd like to have power from time to time. I'd like to purchase a generator to set up on a semi permanent basis, inside a small generator house to keep it out of the weather and to muffle some of the sound. I'd like to have it a 100 ft or so from the cabin, have a remote start and have it run on propane/LP gas. Can anyone make any suggestions on what generator to purchase. I'm thinking something between 4.5 and 6.5 Kw would do nicely and hopefully keep the price down. I've heard good things about Honda generators but it seems they can't be run on propane.
What about the Onan or Generac generators that are made for RVs?
Any thoughts, ideas or advice would be appreciated
