Choosing Your Standby Power Solution

There's no such thing as "one size fits all" when it comes to standby power for your business. Generac has a variety of options to meet the specific needs of your business.

Multiple Sizes and Configurations
There are Many Paths to Getting the Power You Need

Sometimes backing up your business is as easy picking as single generator that's the right size. But local codes, property restrictions, and your unique power needs might mean multiple generators connected in parallel and installed around your facility. Or perhaps a transfer switch that can accommodate a mobile generator makes the most sense. Whatever your needs, Generac has a full line of standby power products to choose from. And the expertise to help you make an informed buying decision.

Several Fuel Options
Select the Fuel Type That Fits Your Needs

On-site diesel fuel is the traditional choice for standby power. But it's hardly the only choice. Generac also manufacturers generators that run on natural gas and liquid propane (LP) fuel. This choice of fuels adds to the flexibility you have in choosing a standby power system that is the best fit for your business.
