Looking to back up your entire home, or more items than usual? Consider the Protector Series gaseous automatic backup generator line. These units powers essential appliances and modern technologies during power outages, allowing homeowners and their families to continue living life comfortably and without interruption.

What Makes the Protector Series Such a Great Choice?

True Power™ Technology
Delivers best-in class power quality with less than 5% total harmonic distortion (THD) for clean, smooth operation of sensitive electronics and appliances.

A cutting-edge, intuitive control. The Evolution controller features a multilingual, two-line LCD text display with color-coded, backlit buttons. It has received upgrades, including USB flash capability, smart battery charging, voltage adjustment, and backlit membrane pad style buttons.

5-year limited warranty, with extended warranty options available.

Can Be Installed Just 18" From a Structure
Capability to be installed 18 inches away from a structure, ideal for areas with tight lot lines.  Generac’s is the only manufacturer of standby generators to have 18” offset on most of its residential lineup.

Tough, Durable All-Aluminum Enclosures
Our RhinoCoat™ powder-coated finish helps make corrosion-resistant aluminum perfect for all weather conditions.

Quiet-Test™
All backup generators run a weekly test to ensure the system is running properly. Thanks to Quiet-Test, your Protector Series home generator runs its self-test at a lower, quieter RPM, which can be programmed to run weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Mobile Link™ Connectivity
Comes standard with all Protector Series generators. Mobile Link allows you to monitor the status of your generator from anywhere in the world using a smartphone, tablet or PC. Easily access information, such as the current operating status and the generator’s maintenance schedule. Connect your account to an authorized service dealer for fast, friendly and convenient assistance. With Mobile Link, your generator is taken care of before the next outage.

Additional Features
Improved stub ups and electrical connection access decrease installation costs. All connections are dual conductor rated, and the implementation of quick connects for the control wires, completely eliminates the need for crimping or lugging.
Improved customer connection access, which decreases installation costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice system Although we haven’t yet had a power outage to fully test this Generac 30kw, the initial assessment of the unit has been favorable. The setup by the approved service provider was expertly performed and all test of the unit were successfully completed. We are anticipating the coming hurricane season in the south east with better than usual expectations. We hope that when the time comes Generac will take care of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit was just installed but, I have not had a chance to experience the actual operation. This unit has all the bells and whistles except I was surprised to have to purchase a WIFI adapter and pay an annual fee for being able to monitor it from my iPhone and computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, So good! First a nod to Jason and his crew for a nice neat install. Unit was in service Friday PM and we had a storm and power failure early Sunday AM. Generator took over and is humming along nicely!
