Generators are noisy (audible) and noisy (electrical). Best bet is some form of battery system that can output a sinusoidal wave (try to avoid square waves!). You could run a solar rig into the battery to keep it topped up. It depends on the amount of gear you want to run - check the watt usage on each item, convert to kVA and find a suitable battery and ...
