I know most lights over 2K have this plug, my question is what do you plug it into? Generators make enough power, but it seems they only have normal sockets on them. Is this where an electrician comes in?

Small generators typically have normal sockets on them. They can be had with a 60amp bates installed. Large generators are typically going to have cam-lock connectors for your feeder lines which terminate at a distro box where you can get bates power.
