I think it's t'other way round for some at least:
- diesel runs when lots of umph required and charges battery pack at the
- diesel off and battery pack supplies low loads
One benefit is that there's no need to run a loud diesel generator
overnight just for lights, security, security guard's satellite TV, etc.
 it's the thought that counts
