It's an interesting idea, just not ready for primetime IMHO.
Sue, what brand tank do you have? The tank in my previous home is also power vented and we HAD hot water when the power went out. Just because it has an electric power vent doesn't mean the hot water that's already in the tank will not flow. All it means is that the tank will not heat additional water.
