In addition to the above, Ground power has a tendancy to drop off line under heavy loads. At the moment, an unexpected and non normal shutdown of the 787 computer systems will cause hours of resets and tests before dispatch.
Also, if you want air conditioning on ground, and there is no conditioned air available on stand, then either a 3rd GPU is required or run the APU.
