Powerwall vs generator for backup?

Home in Southern California, about 1600 sqft. I have a 4.7kw solar system. I’m on SCE’s TOU plan (also have an EV). Want to have some kind of backup with all the recent power outages. Other than being green, is there any benefit to the Powerwall vs a generator? Tesla quoted me $11,690 for the 1 Powerwall + installation. I’m not sure I want to spend that much on battery backup.
