As I see it, you have two options.

1. Pick up some of those UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) things and get them charged for use on the road.

2. Get a gas powered electric generator.

UPS usually don't have too much power... especially for a computer like a G5... i doubt you'd get more than 10 minutes (i think UPS's are designed to give you time to save and shut down your computer in case of an outage)
