I have a 9165 watt solar system which reverse meters to the grid. If the power is off, I have no power. Will one of the natural gas backup generators work with my system, or does the solar add complications?
Erik Johnson

Answer
Having multiple power sources can make things very complicated. However, we do offer two models of generators which can be turned on and off by your solar systems inverter system.

Generac's EcoGen model 5818 is specifically designed for use with alternative power options such as solar and wind and comes with a 3 year warranty......

Generac EcoGen Model 5818

Kohler offers their 14kW home standby generator capable for use with solar systems but they only offer an 18 month warranty as they are not specifically designed for this type of application. The generators internal controller can be adjusted to accept a 2 wire start from your inverter system.

Kohler 14kW Model 14RESA

We do recommend consulting with a local installer as your application can have some special parameters and installation requirements. They will also be familiar with your local code requirements so installation is done properly.

Fuel pipe size is based on the distance from the fuel source and for the Kohler models the recommended pipe size and max distances are listed in the installation guide and in the Kohler spec sheet....

Will the Kohler 14kw propane, work with my Nexus 200 amp smart switch?

Answer
No, you can only use a Kohler switch with a Kohler generator. If you want the same load shed capabilities you will need to purchase the Kohler Load Control Module along with the transfer switch.

If you currently have a 200A Generac Nexus switch you can only go with a Generac generator due to the wiring and how they are controlled.

How does the warranty work? Does it have to be installed by a Kohler certified dealer for the warranty work?
Franz Gerster 
from New York 
December 13, 2012
Read Response +
Answer
Kohler does not require a Kohler certified installer only a minimum would be a certified electrician.

When a Kohler installer does the installation and start-up the warranty starts the day he starts the unit.

When a certified electrician installs and starts the unit the warranty starts the day the unit was shipped from the factory.

All service and warranty work must be completed by an authorized Kohler service technician.

What would the fuel consumption be for the 14kW? Assuming a 200 gal LP tank, circuit load: 1 refrigerator, 1 microwave 1300 watts, and 4 small lighting circuits.
Bill Borresen 
from Georgia

Answer
The posted fuel consumption of the 14kW Kohler home standby generator is:

1.8 Gallons/Hr when running at 50% load....2.3 Gallons/Hr at Full Load

The fuel consumption will vary depending on the actual load on the generator and you will need to have a certified electrician calculate your loads based on the starting amperage of the equipment you are intending on running.

Note: Tank size does not determine the fuel consumption of the generator, only the load on the generator.

Most of our outages are in summer with a 3-ton AC running. Would this unit handle that plus a fridge & freezer, etc?
Max Tappen

Answer
It would be close when you are adding items to the mix. I would recommend getting the Kohler load manager so it can load shed the AC when it first starts while letting everything else start and get past its starting loads.

With this model generator you will need to get a transfer switch and if you are looking to do whole house the following switch would be recommended if you have 200A electrical service which you would need to verify with your installing electrician.

The composite pad is the same color as the entire unit and already attached to the bottom of the generator.
