How It Works

How It Works

1. Utility Power is Lost

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

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


2. Your Generac Generator

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

3. The Generator Turns On - Automatically -

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

4. Your Electricity

Whether it’s a standby power system for a large data center, a backup generator powering the family home through an outage, portable generators powering tools at the job site, or the cleaning power of a pressure washer, Generac meets the power needs of consumers and businesses alike. Across the country and around the world.
