Total overkill for the average bugout. A small wind charger, a single 15-45 watt solar panel, dc powered water pump and 2 6v-deep cycle batteries
will meet your electrical needs for pumping water. Ideally, you should use a gravity feed system for water which will free you from expending any
type of fuel. If you have to pump water, it should be into a cistern or reservoir and not out of it.
