How Does a Home Backup Generator Work?

Perhaps it's a storm. Maybe it's an equipment failure. In any case, the electricity you depend on is suddenly gone.

1. Utility Power
2. Your Generac Generator

Within seconds, your generator prepares to restore your home's power.

Within a few seconds, it is up to speed and generating electricity.

3. The Generator Turns On - Automatically -
4. Your Electricity

The automatic transfer switch sends generator power to your home. And it will continue until utility power returns.
