Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and top notch onstallation The process was absolutely seamless from the initial inquiry to the actual installation. I was kept informed evry step along the way and I am completely satisficed with my new whole home generator. I look forward to piece of mind knowing I'll always have power, no matter what mother nature throws our way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind The salesman along with the installers were very knowledgeable and helpful. The unit is the right size for my needs and it runs well. The only complaint is that it is loud but I will put up with it for the peace of mind that it gives me. I like the fact that I don't have to worry about the unit because I opted for the wi-fi so the supplier will be informed if something is wrong with it. It is basically an install and forget about it. I have the peace of mind now that if there is a power outage that I will have electricity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of mind I love this generator. I now have piece of mind that when the power failure at my mother's house, in 8 seconds her life can return to normal. At her age this is important to me and generac puts my mind at ease. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unit looks great and hopefully will perform as expected Just installed today and install was great really good crew. When he went to do test of system generator unit fired up but would not switch over to power the house. Installer said there is a defective switch in unit preventing transfer. I understand things happen and am hoping once replaced generator will perform as expected and provide the peace of mind il looking for and the reliability GENERAC is known for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Quite as described. Did a lot of research and decided on Generac. I am chairman of the board of our local power provider. I had our our staff spec out my size needs, based on my peak usage for the past 6 months. I bought a unit much larger than recommended. When final hook up was done(very expensive) we could not even test the unit because a starter battery was not included. Then the state electrical inspector and my local professional electrician informed me that the breaker in the unit was abou 1/2 of what was needed to power this unit. I still do not have it on line. Very disappointed at this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great generator We recently moved from New Jersey where we had our 1st Generac 22KW generator and were completely pleased with its performance and overall value. Upon moving to Maine we just had another Generac 22KW generator installed and am looking forward to continued outstanding performance. Highly recommended.
