Whether you're off grid by choice or necessity, you're responsible for the production of the energy you consume. Even when there’s no sun or wind, your batteries continue to deliver electricity. Unless you have a backup power system in place, your battery bank will drain. Generac engineered the EcoGen home backup generator as the first automatic backup generator warranted for off-grid use when used in an alternative energy system. It integrates easily into your existing inverter and battery storage system. And it runs on your existing LP fuel supply.
EcoGen Series generator purchases are eligible for a $1,500 rebate from the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC). This rebate reduces the unit’s MSRP price by 40%. PERC promotes the safe and efficient use of odorized propane gas through research and development, training, and safety programs.
Why Invest in Backup Power in an Alternative Energy System?
Even with wind or solar power, there is a chance your batteries will drain, leaving you without power. EcoGen can recharge your batteries in the interim. See how the features of the EcoGen home backup generator make it ideal for off-grid use in an alternative energy system.
Clean-burning propane fuel increases efficiency, contributes to longer engine life, and produces significantly less carbon monoxide than gasoline-fueled engines. Propane gas can be stored indefinitely and is available at many off-grid locations.
Our exclusive premium oil-recovery and circulation system virtually halts oil degradation, resulting in greatly extended maintenance intervals—an unprecedented five times the industry standard, with 500 hours between oil changes.
The EcoGen is at least 10 dB(A) quieter than competitive units, and significantly quieter than a standard portable generator.
Purpose-built for the rigors of generator use, Generac's OHVI® engine requires significantly fewer scheduled maintenance checkups than many competitive engines.
Easily control generator diagnostics and get information at a glance with Generac's user-friendly Nexus™ Controller.
Subject to credit approval. Minimum monthly payments required. Available in the U.S. only. See dealer for details.
