Frequently Asked Questions

An automatic standby generator is a back-up electrical system that operates whether you are home or away. Within seconds of an outage, it automatically supplies power directly to your home’s electrical circuit breaker box. After utility power returns, the generator shuts itself off and waits for the next outage. It operates on natural gas or liquid propane gas and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit.
An automatic transfer switch transfers power from your utility power to your standby generator. When a power outage occurs, the transfer switch senses the power interruption on the line and in turn signals the generator to start. When normal power is restored, the transfer switch automatically transfers power back to utility power and shuts the generator down.
