Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great System Installation went very well and the system started right up after installation was complete. The installation team selected Generac's 30 KW system for our business. Everything is running great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is working perfect We had our whole house generator installed and one day afterwards, our power went out at 11:55 PM. Power was restored at 6:00 AM. The next morning, I mentioned to my wife that the generator worked perfect. She never realized that we had lost power for six hours. The generator kicked on within seconds and ran superbly for the six hours we were without house power. A wise decision! We were so tired of being without power. It takes the utility company too long to respond. Great product so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest features offered in 30kw products 2nd Generac product for our family. Installed 1st 15years ago with NO issues other than normal expected maintenance. With retirement coming up in the near future decided to upgrade to the only company I know and have trusted for the past 15 years. My old unit is being moved over to the cow pasture to handle the electric fences in times of power outages there, still runs great just found a new purpose. Look forward to years of great service on my new 30kw Generac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for the Money!!! Hurricane Irma came and Generac. Generator ran for ten days without a problem. The area was littered with trees and other debris and the generator survived without a scratch. While other people lost their food in the freezer and refrlgerator we survived without losing any food. If you live in the area that is subject to tropical storms then a generator should be a necessity not a luxury.
