WHAT IS AN AUTOMATIC STANDBY GENERATOR?
An automatic standby generator is a backup electrical system that operates whether you are home or away. Within seconds of an outage, the automatic transfer switch senses the loss of power, and starts the generator, automatically supplying power directly to your home’s electrical circuit breaker box. After utility power returns, the automatic transfer switch transfers the electrical load back to utility power and signals the generator to shut itself off and wait for the next outage. It operates on natural gas or liquid propane gas and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit.
