Not necessarily, if you get a smaller freestanding unit (they look similar to a big dehumidifier) then they don't use nearly as much power as a built in system. Sure, you'll still need to power it but if you only run it for an hour or two when it's really needed then a small generator or decent wind/solar battery set up would be sufficient.
