A standby generator is permanently installed outside your home or commercial building and wired directly into the electrical system to provide power to some or all of your home or business's circuits during a utility power outage.
Auto-Start / Auto-Shutdown - When power goes out wait 10 seconds and your standby generator will start and transfer power to your home/business. When power is restored from your power company the transfer switch will automatically transfer from the backup generator to your normal power company. The generator will go into a momentary cool down idle then turn itself off.
Home Backup Generator Fuel - Standby Whole-House generators are fueled by liquid propane or natural gas and require professional installation and a permit.
The number of circuits that a standby generator can provide power for is determined by the wattage of the circuits that the generator would be servicing. You add all the wattage together and this will determine the size generator that would meet your needs. Along with a free site survey of your home or business, we will determine together your power requirement and SSG will recommend the best generator systems for your electrical needs and best overall value.
There are many factors to consider when buying a standby generator and SSG will explain to you in plain English what your choices are and why one generator may be better than another for your home or business.
Standby generators create from 8Kva to20Kva watts or more of power. You will need a generator that supplies enough peak and continuous wattage for the circuits you need to power. You can also choose between an air-cooled and a liquid-cooled standby generator model.
SSG installs generators by Generac, Siemens, Kohler, Winco, Honda, Guardian and other major generator brands. Our years of first-hand experience with all the major backup generator brands enables us to advise you of the benefits of one brand over another regarding cost, performance and reliability.

Standby generators are usually fully enclosed units permanently mounted outside your home or business and vary in size. A home standby generator may cost as little as $1,500 or as much as $15,000 or more - the greater the power generating capacity, the higher the cost.
