Some have never even heard of an EMP, much less have any protection from one. To understand a little more try reading this article from Wikipedia.
In most climates, including Tennessee, there will be periods of time when the weather produces very low solar output for a particular day and occasionally, especially in the winter, several in a row. Getting a battery bank to support numerous days in a row of "typical usage" from the sun or another source is typically not financially helpful. For true off-grid life, generators are often the initial source of backup power. A crucial aspect of the design phase is minimizing generator usage and run-time. Nobody wants to go off the grid, have to pay $600 in propane for the generator since the system was undersized, and replace their $150/month power bill.
