Thanks. A couple of people told me that the target is 8hrs for Bell Canada
huts. So hopefully some power will make it there before long. Not sure how
well they will prioritize what huts to charge with portable gensets. I
imagine they dont of course have a portable genset for every hut out there.

Of course it varies from location to location. Generally, after 8-12
hours we will start seeing infrastructure problems as remote batteries
run down. Providers will be re-charging batteries with portable
generators, but predicting battery lifetimes is as much art as science.
Sometimes the battery doesn't last as long as predicted.
