Rated 5 out of 5 by from out with the old Changed out 15 yr old generator with new Generac. Have real peace of mind with ATS and load shedding devices. Now I run with confidence. Had power outage day after installation. Worked like a charm! Quiet good looking machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Insurance Ever We've had the generator for only a short time and haven't yet had to rely on it, but we are absolutely ecstatic with our purchase. It looks great, runs quiet, and re-powers the whole house in under 30 seconds. The mobile link is a bonus, as it keeps us informed every time there is a status change, as well as keeping track of the time run, as well as how much longer till maintenance is needed. Overall we couldn't be happier. One of the best things we've ever done for our house. Thanks Generac

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a Happy Customer! My generator is not even a year old and is broken. The part that generates the electricity burnt up and needed replaced. Now the housing unit doesn’t close right. The people who installed it aren’t sure what to do. I am furious, I think they should replace the thing. I would never recommend these to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Standby generator Living down south we deal with storms half the year. I was tired of pulling out a portable generator and having it not start much of the time. I had this installed and a week later we had a storm which knocked out the electric at 2 am. It was nice to hear my generator kick on and the hum from it put my right back to sleep. Best investment for my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product will cover my whole house. It is a huge relief to know that I will never have to worry about a power outage. Generac and Holly Electric did an outstanding job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really nice generator Our generator is brand new so we have not had to use it. Previously we had a 20 kW generator and loved it. It was always there when we needed it. So we are anticipating the same service with our new 22kW. Love the fact that it is WiFi enabled.
