Instead of waiting for the utility company to restore power, home and business owners are taking matters into their own hands to protect their investments from prolonged power outages.
Standby generators are basically mini emergency power plants.
These permanently mounted generators are commonly fueled by reliable natural gas or propane. The electricity is then routed into the home or business through an automatic transfer switch, which also automatically starts and stops the generator.
Standby generators are available for residential, commercial, and industrial uses. The largest, prime power models can completely replace utility power in remote or high-demand applications.
