PowerPact 7kW Features and Benefits

Generac’s 7 kW PowerPact™ home standby generator is the affordable, automatic alternative to portable backup power. Features incorporate many of the qualities and reliability of the best selling Guardian Series, while remaining the most affordable home standby generator available. Significantly quieter than a portable generator, it protects the home’s most essential circuits, like refrigerators, well pumps and select appliances, without having to manually set up during inclement weather, refuel, or run electrical cords.

PowerPact 7kW <strong>Features and Benefits</strong>

Affordable, Automatic 24/7 Backup Power
With Generac PowerPact you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your home and family are protected 24/7 from the dangers of power outages. Cover just the essential electrical items with the most affordable automatic backup generator available on the market.

Certified for 18" Installation to the Home
Third-party certified to NFPA standards to be installed as close as 18” from the home’s exterior wall, provided it is located away from doors, windows, and fresh-air intakes, and unless otherwise directed by local codes.

Easy Accessibility
Three of the four sides are easily removable for simplified service and maintenance access.

All-Weather Steel Enclosure
Our durable powder-coat finish helps make the sturdy, galvanneal steel enclosure perfect for all weather conditions.

Continuous Fuel Source - LP or Natural Gas
The engine runs on existing liquid propane or natural gas for a continuous, worry-free fuel supply.

Mobile Link Compatible
Take advantage of Generac’s Mobile Link cellular remote monitoring system and check on your generator’s status using your computer, tablet or smartphone, even when you are away. Sold separately.

Non-cellular remote monitoring options are also available for generator monitoring from inside the home.

24/7/365 Customer Support
Power outages don’t always occur during normal working hours. That’s why Generac’s customer care call center—right here in Wisconsin—provides support any time of day or night, all year long. Generac is standing by 24/7, every minute of every day, to answer your questions.

Generac's Pre-Wired

Included with This Generator Bundle

By sizing your generator system according to your needs instead of your home’s square footage, you won’t overspend or be surprised by inadequate coverage. Many homeowners choose to cover only their essential circuits during a power outage. Pair a smaller generator with Generac's pre-wired switch for a simple, remarkably economical system that will keep your basics powered during an emergency.
