Standby Generator Systems

A standby generator can bring a sense of safety and security to a home or business by bringing light, power for appliances, network operations, and temperature control. When utility power fails, a standby generator restores power to all connected circuits within as little as 10 seconds. Likewise, when utility power is finally restored, the generator automatically transfers power back to the utility as it begins to power down the generator.

Everything is automatic. All you need do is operate business as usual and enjoy life without interruption.
