In the event of a power outage, a permanently installed standby generator returns your home or business to power within seconds, 24/7, even when you’re away. An automatic standby generator is powered by your natural gas or LP gas supply, so run time is not limited by the size of a gasoline or diesel fuel tank.
About the size of an air conditioner, it sits outside your home and is hardwired to your main electrical panel. When it senses an outage, it automatically starts up within 10 to 20 seconds to supply electricity to your home or business. When power returns, it shuts itself off automatically and returns to standby mode. Your life goes on without disruption.
