APC says it's available on the SUA2200RM2U and SUA3000RM2U, and lists
it as optional for the APC SUA1500RM2U.
I would consider all of these to be reasonably priced.

See if they'll guarantee diverse power as part of the contract. :-)
It's disappointing to find a colo that feeds you your primary and
redundant power off the same UPS.
