This popular inverter generator is on sale at Amazon at $679. It is less noisy than the Firman WH03242 that was on sale at Costco a couple months ago at $599 ($649 shipped).
It is $120 cheaper than a previous deal posted last year.

Even though a person can buy this through Wen direct and have it shipped to California, Amazon for whatever reason, will not ship it to Ca.
Eh, even with tax it's low enough for me to bite now.

WEN site currently sells for $799, the lowest last year was $705 for short period of time. If buying from Amazon delivered to NJ, total including tax will be $723.98, a difference of $19 assume $705 will be showing up again from WEN site in coming days

It really depends on if you have a spot outdoors that you can run it and run an extension cable... These can't be used indoors and using it on a patio right next to the house might give off too many fumes to be safe.

You can look into the battery/solar generators, like ecoflow or jackery. Though, strong ones are pretty spendy

edit: these can't be used indoors*

As with any fuel powered generator these absolutely should be used outdoors.

If there's currently severe weather it's a little bit of a different story, however tossing them underneath a folding table or something else with open sides that is preferably flame retardant/heat resistant will preclude any issues. Alternatively there are generator covers, although those are both pricier and single purpose while still saying they shouldn't be operated in anything other than normal weather.

Its fine for that but depending on budget and feasibility look into battery backup as well. Be sure to have good outdoor ventiallated area for this...
