door where I live (house on the right).
I hooked up an extension cord and plugged my office stuff into house on the
right and was back online in minutes. It just depends on which side
of the main power you are hooked up to and which side goes out (if it
doesn't all go out)
Here is a graphic to show what I mean.
Many people have two electric meters, just make sure that they are each hooked
up to a different part of the 220 and you will have the option of using the
part of the power that is still working.
